Artwork Description:

THE PRICE OF THIS ETCHING INCLUDES A BLACK PAINTED WOOD FRAME WITH GLASS AND ACID FREE MAT. THE FRAME MEASURES FOURTEEN INCHES HIGH BY ELEVEN INCHES WIDE. THE WHITE MAT CONTAINS A BLACK INNER TRIMMED EDGE. THE ARTWORK ARRIVES WIRED AND READY TO HANG ON YOUR WALL. A WALL HOOK AND NAIL ARE ALSO INCLUDED. Four studio techniques of aquatint, intaglio, drypoint, and Chine Colle were employed. Its title refers to the German Cabaret dancer and performance artist, Anita Berber, who was born in Dresden on June 10th 1899 and died young in 1928. It was executed on a zinc etching plate that measured four inches wide by five inches high, or 10.160cm by 12.700cm. The wood and glass frame with archival mat is 9 inches wide by 12 inches high. Media include oil base etching ink, Rives BFK white paper, and Thai mulberry bark paper, methyl cellulose, and kozo. Three separate nitric acid baths were required to obtain the final design. The 1922 photograph that Di Falco used in his studies for this etching originated from a print by the German fashion photographer, Madame D’Ora, a. k. a. Dora Kallumus. Berlin was the central location in the world in the 1930s for avant-garde and Dadaist performance art. The political satire inherent in the scripts added an artistic edge to the entertainment and theatrical aspects of CABARET. In addition, Anita Berber was one of the most infamous dancers. She loved cocaine and attending the citys many nightspots with her pet monkey.
