• From Macke's best creative period after the first success in the surroundings of the Blauer Reiter, when Macke began to pursue an individual path in terms of form and motif.
• Marvelous moved and light park scene, its summerly airiness is reflected by the brushwork.
• Between graphic and painterly expression, Macke creates a harmonious composition that is still characterized by the spontaneity of a direct observation.
• Key motif in Macke's art, who showed a strong interest in urban life and people moving about the city, strolling the promenades in elegant hats
