• The work presumably shows the landscape on Lake Connstance near Hemmenhofen where Heckel and his wife Siddi had built a house.
• The year the work was made, the two volume strong catalogue raisonné of prints (Annemarie and Wolf-Dieter Dube) was published, a year later a monography with a catalogue raisonné of paintings (Paul Vogt).
• Heckel also used the same motif for several watercolors from the same year as well as for a later woodcut he dedicated to the collector Luise Schiefler (1865-1967) on occassion of her 100th birthday (Dube H 454).
