• The watercolor was made as a birthday present for Schmidt-Rottluff's younger brother Kurt
• Schmidt-Rottluff's late creative period is charcterized by particularly striking still life compositions
• Compositional mastery and an unbowed radiance make this arrangement that is reduced to the maximum so special.
