The town of Eutin is near the eastern coast of Schleswig Hollstein not far from the island of Fehmarn where some of the Brücke artists and Kirchner in particular spent their summers before the First World War. The town had a rich cultural history and had been the home of the painter Johann Heinrich Wilhelm Tischbein

Intaglio prints are rare in Schmidt-Rottluff’s work.  His first recorded work begins in 1907 when he made three etchings.  In 1908 he made seven etchings, then no more intaglio prints are recorded until 11 drypoints which he made in 1915.  In 1929 he took this up again, for the first time using the master printer Voigt to do the printing. During 1921-4 he made his remaining drypoints and engravings and then never returned to the medium.  These works were generally printed in very small editions.  We have found no other examples of this work on the public market in the last 30 years.  Eutiner Turm is one of the artist’s most accomplished landscape engravings.
