Lot description
Tanzpaar auf der Bühne (mit Hund). 1910.
Pen and India ink drawing.
On smooth paper. 9.7 x 14 cm (3.8 x 5.5 in), size of sheet.

• From the "Brücke" heyday of the Dresden years.
• Owing to the ink's material properties, the depiction has not lost any of its deep blackness over the past 110 years.
• In Dresden E. L. Kirchner developed a strong fascination for dance, which found expression in drawinsg, prints and paintings in his versatile oeuvre.
• E. L. Kirchner found inspiration in cafés and night clubs, such as the "Victoria-Salon", the "Regina-Palast" or the "Tivoli".
• Even though Kirchner was a cat lover, he added a dog watching the dancers as a humorous element
.

We are grateful to Prof. Dr. Dr. Gerd Presler for his kind expert advice.

In good condition. A small brown stain in the lower left and one in the upper margin. Two tiny holes in the dancer's left leg owing to the technique, as the tip of the pen pierced the paper that was moistened by the thick application of the ink upon the making. Trimmed all around (probably from the making).
