Blauer See. 1966.
Upper right monogrammed and dated. On blue flock coated paper. 36.7 x 50.2 cm (14.4 x 19.7 in), the full sheet.
This is a simplified version of the pastel "Bergsee" that the artist made in 1965 during a trip to Lago di Garda. The motif was used for the silkscreen "Blauer See" from 1966, which was then used by Galerie Maercklin, Stuttgart, for a publication.
We are grateful to Mrs Katharina Hadding, Essenheim, for her kind support in cataloging this lot. [AW].
