Inscribed to the German dermatologist Alwin Scharlau: "Komme Ihrem Wunsche gerne nach u. sende hiermit meine Schriftprobe [...]". - A founding member of the Worpswede artists' association in 1894, Vinnen specialized in melancholy landscapes, frequently featuring bright colours and birch trees in the heathlands surrounding his native town of Osterndorf, before moving to Cuxhaven and turning towards maritime themes in his later career. - Some small ink spots; small creases near corners. Self-addressed by the collector on the reverse. The Mecklenburg physician Scharlau (b. 1888) assembled a collection of artists' autographs by personal application.
