- Between Dresden and Berlin: a work from the "Brücke" heyday (1905-1913). - Landscape and nature were key sources of inspiration for E. L. Kirchner and his fellow "Brücke" artists. - In the summer of 1911, Kirchner and his "Brücke" fellow Otto Mueller with his wife Maria ("Maschka") visited the painter Willy Nowak in Mníšek pod Brdy (Mnischek) in Bohemia. - Motif and expression of this drawing are closely related to Kirchner works created at the Moritzburg Ponds (1909-1911) near Dresden around the same time. - During his trip to Bohemia, the artist painted, among other things, the closely related painting "Böhmischer Waldsee" (1911, Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich) and also designed a postcard for Erich Heckel with a very similar composition (July 26, 1911, Altonaer Museum, Hamburg).
This work is documented in the Ernst Ludwig Kirchner Archive, Wichtrach/Bern.
LITERATURE: Galerie Wolfgang Ketterer, Munich, auction 87, November 26, 1984, p. 130, lot 771 (illu.). Galeria Henze, Campione d'Italia 1987, cat. no. 5 (illu.) Kunsthaus Lempertz, Cologne, Moderne Kunst, auction 847, November 26, 2003, p. 56, lot 759 (illu. in color).

Estate of the artist (Davos 1938, Kunstmuseum Basel 1946, with the numbered estate stamp on the reverse). Stuttgarter Kunstkabinett Roman Norbert Ketterer, Stuttgart (1954). Dr. Peiner, Helmstedt Collection. Galerie Maulberger, Munich. Private collection Northern Germany (acquired from the above in 2005). Ever since family-owned
A dense composition of color areas and graphic lines. Sheet all in all slightly creased, some mount staining. Edges slightly irregular. The adhesion of the watercolor is partly uneven due to the technique and the superimposition of different media, leading to small losses. Corners with small creased and crimped areas (somewhat more pronounced in the upper corners). Upper edge with small paper losses, isolated faint paper losses in the upper margin.
