Am Meer - Sylt. 1935.
Lower right signed and dated. Titled "Am Meer" on the reverse. On creme wove paper. 44.7 x 70.1 cm (17.5 x 27.5 in), the full sheet.
Inscribed with the abbreviations on the colors by the artist, presumably added in the studio at a later point. [CH].
• For the first time exhibited in the year of the artist's death.
• Atmospheric dune landscape in an impressive format.
• In addition to his preference for the Baltic coast, where he and his wife Siddi bought a small farmhouse, Heckel spent many summers on the German North Sea coast, particularly in Kampen on the island of Sylt.
• Due to a material shortage, the artist devoted himself to works in watercolor during these years
