Essay
In his years in Davos Kirchner increasingly made illustrations of rural life. The farners' routines in summer are mostly affected by their cattle. This sheet shows the Corn da Tinizong in the background, Kirchner also depicted the towering summit in his painting "Almhütte und Tinzenhorn" (Gordon 601)
