Like his Brücke colleagues, Pechstein aimed at an intensive and high-contrast use of colour. Like a woodcut with a few details, topics of everyday life were taken up, such as people, the big city, nudes and nature. The latter also includes the sheet of Fading Tulips, which Pechstein painted in watercolors in 1949 as an academy professor. With quick brushstrokes he colors the vase and the flowers, which shine in the strongest colours.
