High summer through the eyes of August Haake (1889-1915)

"Feld mit Kornhocken" painted by August Haake over a period of 1911-1914 in Fischerhude near Bremen in Germany. Oil painting on cardboard, size 50x71,5 cm. Private Property. The painting is not dated and has the signing AH. 

August Haake used to ride his motorcycle from Bremen to Fischerhude. His painting was hanging on the way behind his back. This is the simple reason that the painting has two holes on the top. August Haake pulled a piece of string through both holes and made a knot. Therefore both holes are regarded as the signing by August Haake.
