This painting represents the hustle and bustle of city life in Dresden. Since German Expressionism is during the time of the first world war, the people are probably dissatisfied with Germany's actions and roles in the war. The lady may seem lifeless becuase she may be starving in a time of deep hardship.

His paintings had a carpet-like two dimensional feeling, and he later moved out to the country side which prompted him to paint his surroundings
