Main bei Würzburg. 1927.
Watercolor and color chalks.
Lower right signed and dated. Titled in the lower left. On wove paper. 55.5 x 69 cm (21.8 x 27.1 in), the full sheet. [AW].

• In the year the work was created, Siddi and Erich Heckel spent a long time in Würzburg, where they were guests at the estate of the painter Gertraud Rostosky (1876-1959).
• During this stay he created paintings like “Marienveste bei Würzburg” (1927, Staatliche Museen zu Berlin), which has been on loan to the Federal Chancellery in Bonn since 1977.
• By dispensing with subordinate details, Heckel achieves generosity and simplicity in his depiction

The work is registered in the Erich Heckel Estate, Hemmenhofen on Lake Constance. We are grateful to Mrs Renate Ebner for the kind support in cataloging this lot.
