About the Work

During his one-year stay in the Soviet Union for study purposes, Werner Tübke made the acquaint-ance of Ingrid Ziglow, a German student, in Moscow. He executed her likeness according to the princi-ples of portrait art that he had developed for his own drawing lessons: The portrait filled much of the surface. He first recorded the major forms as outlines, then devoted himself to the details. Harsh shadows were to be avoided. The artist depicted the student in a wide, historicizing garment with a broad collar, giving her the look of a figure from an earlier time. With regard to both choice of motif and drawing technique, he took the traditions of the Old Masters as his orientation.
