"Heckel's landscapes provide an example of inner feelings translate into painting, into a specific genre of art. Nature is not viewed objectively and soberly, as a model for a masterly brushwork, precisely seen and transferred in exact colors and light, instead the artist feels the essence of nature, strong and yet delicate."
Ludwig Justi, quoted from: Karlheinz Gabler, Erich Heckel und sein Kreis, Dokumente, 1983, p. 156
