An inquiry by Jochen Richter revealed that "Am Wege" is owned by the Alte Nationalgalerie (Bodestraβe 1-3, 10178 Berlin) and that, at the present, it does not appear to be publicly exhibited. (Source: Letter from Dr. Jörn Grabowski, Zentralarchiv, Staatliche Museen zu Berlin, Preussischer Kulturbesitz, to Dr. Jochen Richter. January 28, 2003).

"Am Wege" was exhibited at the 1894 Grosse Berliner Kunstaustellung.

Depending on the source consulted, this bust depicts either August Bebel or Ludwig Bamberg. (Ironically, the two men were fierce political opponents.)

Sources supporting the "August Bebel" claim:

The above confusion is somewhat understandable.
Bebel and Bamberger have a rather similar face:
