Excellent, very strong impression on a full sheet. There is only one state of this. It is probably from a small edition on this copper printing paper of a maximum of 20 copies.
In the background we see the artist's house in Reihen in Germanay, which he moved in on the 20th June 1898. He bought it two years before, building the house to meet his personal taste and furnishing the rooms with pieces that he himself had designed. Sandreuter christened the house 'Zur Mohrhalde' and it has been preserved to this day as it was left.
