Credit Line: The Milton Wichner Collection Bequest, 1979

Commentary
The color areas abut horizontally and vertically within and outside the face, a feature not seen in the "Saviour's faces" or the group of female heads c. 1922, and which is characteristic of the "Abstract heads" series. The stylistic features of two series are thus mingled in this single work, a phenomenon occurring only in Jawlensky's watercolors.
