Dated 1917, the present sheet was drawn during Paula Rösler’s Cheimgau period. A larger, stylistically comparable drawing of Wildflowers and a Grasshopper, executed on vellum, has been recently acquired by the Minneapolis Institute of Art. Also similar is a very large drawing of wildflowers which appeared at auction in Germany in 2016.
