Karl Schmidt-Rottluff was a German Expressionist Painter, 1884-1976. Up until 1910 Schmidt-Rottluff's paintings are characterized by the expressive energy of "flaming" forms and thickly applied paint. In 1911 his landscapes began to display an overwhelming calm. Details are subordinated to a larger structure, and there are strong contrasts between warm and cool colors which support simplified geometric shapes.

During the purge of "degenerate art" in 1937-38, 608 of his works were confiscated from public collections in Germany, and he was forbidden to paint. During World War II, Schmidt-Rottluff served in the command post office on the Russian front and created wooden sculptures and religious woodcuts. He continued to paint throughout his lengthy life.

This painting was originally published on the Fleetwood® First Day Cover for the Germany 60pf Karl Schmidt-Rottluff stamp issued November 8, 1984.
