Lot Essay

We are grateful to Professor Dr. Günther Gercken, Lütjensee, Germany, for his assistance in cataloguing this lot. Professor Gercken is currently preparing the new catalogue raisonné of prints by Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, the fourth volume of which has recently been published. Gercken considers the differences between Dube's first and second state merely as differences in the inking and printing, not as changes to the stone. He records eight impressions of this print, including the present one.
