LITERATURE: Gerd Woll: Edvard Munch – The complete graphic Works, Oslo 2012.
In Lübeck Dr. Max Linde had built up a sizeable collection of modern art, and in 1902 he began to take an interest in Munch. In the course of that autumn he acquired what amounts to nearly a complete collection of Munch’s graphic production, and he invited Munch to produce a series of graphic portraits of his family and of their beautiful estate in Lübeck. P. 204.
