Commentary
In the early 1920s, Jawlensky returned to Wiesbaden, Germany where he would remain for the rest of his life. By then he was in dire financial straits and thought that a production of a lithograph portfolio in 1922 would be a new source of income. The portfolio consisted of spare studies of heads in formal orientations, included to the left and right, with closed and open eyes.
