Artwork Description:

Ships without mat or frame. This work by Di Falco is a Mixed media and mixed genre creation that employed the use of printmakingetching on a zinc plate developed in Nitric acid baths and painting watercolors and gouache. It depicts a scene from the 1920 silent horror film from Germany entitled, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, or in German, “Das Cabinet des Dr. Caligari”. This cinematic masterpiece, directed by Robert Wiene and co-written by Hans Janowitz and Carl Mayer, has become the archetypal example of German Expressionist cinema. It concerns the story of a fanatical hypnotist, played by actor Werner Krauss, who manipulates a somnambulist, acted by Conrad Veidt, to commit murders. The film’s plot unveils itself in a sinister and salient cinematic style, with sharp edges, tilted and twisting horizons, structures and landscapes that lean and twist in unusual angles. The camera work weaves in and out of shadowy and stark light, enhanced by a set of minimalist geometric illusions. This film has had a major influence on US films, particularly in the genre of film noir.
