From 1907 to 1912 Schmidt-Rottluff visited the small North Sea resort of Dangast, initially he was accompanied by Heckel or Pechstein. The simple landscape he found there, with just a few striking houses, the post house, the villa with tower, the windmill at the entrance to the town, as well as the spa houses, offered the painters an occasion to capture the incredibly intense colorfulness on canvas or paper. Schmidt-Rottluff attained a new intensity, especially in watercolors, which even makes the motif of houses in fog a color experiment. In 1909 he worked in Dangast until October, making, in addition to paintings, large watercolors characterized by a new and dynamic expressivesness owing to the watery and flowing material properties.
