Catalogue Note

Trained at the Düsseldorf academy, Carl Schmitz-Pleis was a German painter of landscapes, still-lifes and figurative paintings. In 1907-08 Schmitz-Pleis and fellow artist Walter Hugo Ophey founded the artists' group Künstlervereinigung Niederrhein, which was one of the most progressive movements of the time. In the spring of 1910 the two young artists travelled to Italy, where—inspired by the Neo-Impressionists—the present work was painted.
