Front cover of the guest book of Alfred and Tekla Hess.

All the artists who stayed with Alfred and Tekla Hess were encouraged to add a sketch or poem to the visitor’s books. Many did, and the originals are now in the Bauhaus-Archiv Museum, Berlin. Heckel, like Kirchner was fascinated by the energy and atmosphere in the world of the music-hall, circus and cabaret.
