Skarbina was among the founding members and from 1900-1901 a member of the board of the “Berliner Secession”. However, he resigned in 1901 because its further development was in conflict with his artistic conservatism. In many respects, the present work is an interesting artistic document of the social consciousness of the Wilhelminian epoch, a time in which the Prussian residence metamorphosed into the German metropolis. The picture shows the new society of the up-and-coming cosmopolitan city enjoying a stroll under the pier of one of the many seaside resorts.
