Grea Heron on the Banks of the Rhine, oil on canvas

Creation year

early 1970s

The stoic-looking bird stands motionless on the riverbank in its typical posture, waiting for prey. The diffuse evening light of a rather gloomy day makes the scene look a bit like a page from a picture book or a comic story. The picture is painted on a colorful linen fabric, something Fritz did frequently, primarily in the first half of the 1970s.
