Beckmann, Max. DER ZEICHNER IN GESELLSCHAFT. Hofmeier 230. Drypoint, 1922. Third state of three. Edition of approximately 100. Signed in pencil, lower right, and numbered 10/40 in pencil by Gunther Franke, lower left. Printed on cream wove paper. 13 x 9 5/8 inches, 328 x 242 mm (plate), 19 1/2 x 14 3/4 inches (sheet). Published by R. Piper & Co., Munich. A very good impression with dark burr; in excellent condition. "The man who draws is the painter and printmaker Rudolf Grossmann (1882-1941), with whom Beckmann probably became acquainted at the Berlin home of Karl and Johanna Loeb. He was known for his compulsive drawing, whether alone or in public . . . The seated and bespectacled figure to the right of Grossmann is the Munich painter Rolf E. von Hoerschelmann (1885-1947)."
