Walter Heimig was educated around 1900 at the academy in Düsseldorf, among others with the then famous history and figure painter Eduard von Gebhardt. Despite this solid education, he developed into a light-hearted impressionist. Around 1901 the artist was in Paris, where he was briefly influenced by Fauvism. After his return to Düsseldorf he painted landscapes, nudes and portraits. But above all he made a name for himself with his genre depictions with women: mundane scenes such as ball scenes and elegant companies, the women with small heads and dressed in voluminous, loose-fitting dresses, painted in a unique, clearly recognizable style.
