A versatile artist working in various styles including Art Nouveau as well as Expressionism and Cubism in his later career, Vogeler was one of the first members of the artists' colony Worpswede. His home, Barkenhoff, advanced to a centre of the movement in the early 20th century.

Postmark on verso slightly showing through; a few small creases. Self-addressed by the collector on the reverse. The Mecklenburg physician Scharlau (b. 1888) assembled a collection of artists' autographs by personal application.
