The embossed stamp of the publisher, Verlag der Marées Gesellschaft, R. Piper & Co., Munich, is in the lower right margin. This stellar work is plate 7 from Der Jahrmarkt (The Annual Fair) series. According to Hofmaier, the upper of the couples at left is probably a self-portrait with Minna Beckmann-Tube, the first wife of the artist.
