• "Mann mit Baskenmütze" - a self portrait by Erich Heckel.
• Since 1933 Heckel experimented - also because of lack of suitable material - with irregularly shaped litho stones, found stones of Solnhofer slate, of which he used some for up to ten different lithographs.
• The crescent form in the background is an animal horn that is still part of the estate today and which Heckel's brother Manfred had brought from Africa.
• Proofs from this state are at, among others, the Brücke Museum, Berlin, the Staatliche Kunsthalle Karlsruhe and the Museum Folkwang, Essen..
