About the Work

In Frankfurt, Beckmann carried out a series of townscapes showing houses, streets, squares and bridges – scenes of which some are still to be found in the city today. It was in that context that he executed this pencil study of the Nice - a park on the northern bank of the Main –, which served him as preparation for a painting "The Nice in Frankfurt am Main" (Kunstmuseum Basel). Here we see the façade of the house on the corner of Mainluststrasse and Untermainkai. The energetic drawing style with its curved and intersecting lines lends the building an almost lifelike quality.
