Oil on canvas.
Soika 1911/70. Signed and dated in lower left. Inscribed “Ruhende / 500 / M. Pechstein“ on the reverse. 75 x 101 cm.

• Outstanding museum-quality masterpiece - for nine decades part of the collection of the Nationalgalerie, Berlin.
• Pechstein transforms Edvard Munch’s scandalous picture “The Day After“ from 1894 (Nasjonalmuseet, Oslo) into a declaration of love to his young wife Lotte.
• Lotte - his most inspiring model in the vibrant art metropolis Berlin.
• Pechstein captured the intimate moment in his progressive masterwork with dynamic color contrasts, a strong intensity and an immediate close-up view.
• Returned by the ‘Stiftung Preußische Museen, Neue Nationalgalerie Berlin’ to the heirs of the acclaimed art collector Dr. Ismar Littmann in an amicable agreement.
Further works from the Collection Dr. Ismar Littmann you will find in our Modern Art Day Dale on Saturday, June 10th, 2023 (lot 320 and lot 321).
