LITERATURE: Gerd Woll: Edvard Munch – The complete graphic Works, Oslo 2012, cat.no. 633.

Schiefler (Sch. no. 475) names this lithogrpah "Mädchen von Skagen", and this title became the one most commonly used. It seems to originate from a misreading of the German "Strassen" (Street), which has been read as "Skagen". P. 399.
