"Greatness can't be achieved through making things bigger alone! So naive! but through contrasts between big and small on one sheet. One can show something humongous on a stamp while frittering on meters of canvas."
Lyonel Feininger to Julia Berg, February 9, 1906.

Charming small pen draing, in good condition. Minimally discolored. Tiny isolated brownish spots and very faint traces of rubbing. Corners with tiny pinholes, presumably from making. Upper edge of board slightly irregular. Verso with old mounting remains, minimally ovrlapping to recto.
