Sitzender Halbakt im Atelier (Dodo). Um 1910.
Pencil drawing.
With the estate stamp of the Kunstmuseum Basel (Lugt 1570 b) and the handwritten registration number “B Dre / Bi 124” on the reverse. On smooth wove paper. 42.3 x 33.3 cm (16.6 x 13.1 in), size of sheet. [CH].

• Intimate drawing from the sought-after “Brücke” period.
• The female nude in the studio was one of E. L. Kirchner's and the “Brücke” artists' main motifs in these years.
• Kirchner's lover and later girlfriend Doris “Dodo” Große probably sat for the drawing.
• The famous painting “Weiblicher Halbakt mit Hut" (Museum Ludwig, Cologne), which also shows Dodo as a semi-nude, was created at the same time
