"From 1901 to 1914 Engel visited the island of Föhr every summer and predominantly painted women and girls in local costumes, which earned him the reputation as 'painter of the island of Föhr' in Berlin. He is part of a generation of artists that is influenced by both a traditional academic education and modern tendencies like plain-air painting and Impressionism." (Jutta Müller, AKL).
