Lot Essay

Today I continued work on the new painting that I began in oil yesterday following a few days of composition in pencil. I might call this picture "Der Müde Wanderer" [The tired traveller]. He is laying down with his haversack beneath his head, near him is a dog, in a landscape at dusk with rose-coloured clouds in an evening sky.
Diary entry dated 1 March 1939, p. 435
