Catalogue Note

The present work depicts the German artist Alois Erbach, working in the garden of the arts patron and collector, Heinrich Kirchhoff. Kirchoff was based in Wiesbaden where, in 1908, he built a wonderfully situated villa, surrounded by a tropical garden. In 1920, the year this drawing was executed, Kirchhoff invited Conrad Felixmüller to work in Wiesbaden where he painted, amongst other works, a group portrait of the Kirchoff family, now held in the collection of the Museum Wiesbaden.
