• Masterful depiction of clarity and vastness of sky and sea.
• Fascinating example of Schmidt-Rottluff's superb combination of luminous color and black contour.
• While Schmidt-Rottluff's works on paper have been dominated by the technique of watercolor since the years of the "Brücke", the artist chose a powerful and dynamic coloration in color chalks, which gives the seascape an airy and agitated character.
• Schmidt-Rottluff's sensitivity for the relationship between painted and unpainted surfaces, which he combines into a symbiotic unity in our luminous landscape composition, is outstanding.
