• Abstraction and figuration on one canvas: verso with a fragment of the figurative monotype "In Jubel geboren II".
• Together with Max Pechstein, Georg Tappert and others Moriz Melzer founded the "Novembergruppe" in 1918, in order to bundle the revolutionary artistic forces of the Expressionists, Cubists and Futurists in one association
