In the year 1843 Dahl traveled from Dresden to Rügen. He captured several of his stops in pencil and pen. The artist is especially known for his paintings and oil studies of landscapes and towns. This drawing is proof of the fact that the virtuoso was also able to harmonically depict landscapes in a purely linear fashion.
