The nude woman in this print is outlined in blue watercolor, hinting at the presence of water. In the early years of their association, Erich Heckel and his fellow Die Brücke artists often visited the wooded Moritzburg ponds outside Dresden, a locale known for its bohemian lifestyle that included sunbathing in the nude. Heckel made this image on one of those trips, when he likely produced the sketch and carved the woodblock outdoors.
