Watercolor, color pens and India ink.
Signed in lower right. On light Schoellershammer cardboard (with the blindstamp). 44 x 62.2 cm (17.3 x 24.4 in). [JS].

• Marvelous document of Schmidt-Rottluff's graphic mastery: He reduced the landscape impression to color gradients and forms as well as a high-contrast orchestration of light and shade.
• Uncompromising flatness and clarity make for a landscape impression of a fascinating modernity.
• The painting "Mondaufgang" with the same motif and also from 1956, is in the collection of the Nationalgalerie Berlin.
• Another watercolor variant of this remarkable motif is in possession of the Folkwang Museum, Essen
