Glockenblumen. 1936.
India ink drawing and pencil.
Lower right signed, dated and titled. On wove paper. 64.7 x 50.3 cm (25.4 x 19.8 in), the full sheet.
• The reduced line testifies to the artist's graphic mastery.
• In 1936, the year the work was made, the exhibition of the Deutscher Künstlerbund at the Kunstverein Hamburg with works by Erich Heckel was shut down by the authorities after just a few days, a year later an occupational ban was imposed on him.
• Next to landscapes and portraits, the artist made a lot of flower still lifes over the following years

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