Lighthouse with rotating beam

Another masterpiece by that relatively unknown artist I discovered earlier this year: Paul Adolf Seehaus (1891-1919). The fascinating painting shown above from 1913 may lack the colour palette usually associated with expressionism, but its cubistic tendencies really makes it fit in with other masterpieces of the era. More on Seehaus in the German wikipedia article linked to below (there is no English version).
