A very fine, early impression before the light patches below the feet of the righthand figure.
This imposing composition recalls Heckel’s woodcut Mädchen am Meer of the previous year. In both cases, and in seemingly direct contrast to the desperation felt in Heckel’s self-portrait Mann in der Ebene, one senses the artist’s turn from the despair of the war years to hope for the future.
