Liegendes Kind. Um 1920.
Ink pen drawing.
On firm wove paper. 17.5 x 22 cm (6.8 x 8.6 in), size of sheet.
• Snapshot sketch from the Davos days.
• The Davos peasant families and their lifes provided E. L. Kirchner with inspiration in those days.
• The reduction of graphic means and a focus on the essential lead to a dynamization and an immediacy of the expression.
We are grateful to Prof. Dr. Dr. Gerd Presler for his kind expert advice.
