This large-scale woodcut was created in the period after the First World War.

From 1919 the artist would leave Berlin in the summer months and return to Osterholz, a quiet area on the eastern coast of Schleswig-Hollstein, near Flensburg and the Danish border, where he had spent good periods in the pre-war years.  The countryside and the beaches flanked by low cliffs were a great attraction to the artist and he painted idyllic scenes of man in nature and carved some monumental woodcuts.

The present woodcut relates to various paintings of these years, particularly– Zwei Männer 1919 (Hüneke 1919-6, Private collection, Germany, Drei Figuren am Meer 1920 (Hüneke 1920-7, destroyed) and Zwei Knaben am Meer, 1921 (Hüneke 1921-11, ‘location unknown’)
