1894 Darmstadt - 1974 Frankfurt a.M.
«Wald-Arendse [sic] (forest Arendsee)». View of a forest against the light in the Altmark.
1938/39. Oil on canvas. Signed lower left and dated (19)38. Verso on the stretcher signed again, dated (19)39 and titled. Verso on the stretcher a badly legible stamp of the HSH Nordbank with handwritten inventory number «17671 UBB» and a stamp of the Landesbank Kiel with handwritten inventory number «00158». Verso on the frame a printed label of Bassenge, Berlin, with auction notes.
One of the few landscape paintings by the extraordinary expressionist artist that survived the Second World War. She had a deep friendship with Karl Schmidt-Rottluff (1884 - 1976), which is documented in an extensive correspondence. Because of the great loss of her works due to war damages, Maria von Heider-Schweinitz is also counted among the «lost generation» of expressive realism.
Provenance: presumably collection of the HSH Nordbank; Bassenge, Berlin, auction 104, 27.11.2014, lot 8157; since then private collection South Germany.
