• One of the first works in which Schrimpf devoted himself to the landscape in addition to his figure paintings • Clarity and simplicity as painterly principles of the New Objectivity are also expressed in his landscape paintings • Fascinating precise and at the same time atmospheric work in which Schrimpf seeks to take the genre of landscape painting to Modernism.
Accompanied by an expertise issued by Dr. Christmut Präger, Heidelberg, on November 14, 2020.
PROVENANCE: Presumably Collection Paul Wilhelm Müller (inscribed on verso of the stretcher) Galerie Michael Haas, Berlin.
