This etching was hand printed by the artist at The Center for Works on Paper in Philadelphia, which is part of Fleisher Art Memorial’s OPEN STUDIO IN PRINTMAKING. The work was executed on a zinc plate and incorporates the studio techniques of Intaglio, Chine colle, and Aquatint. Five separate baths in Nitric acid and water were used to achieve the desired image, which was inspired by a 1929 photograph of Wilheim Bendow, a performance artist in German cabaret. This work celebrates the German form of Performing Arts in the 1920s and early 1930s called CABARET, a form of music theater on Europe s cutting edge of the Avant Garde. CABARET coincided with German Expressionist movements in Visual Art, Literature, and Film and was also a place where both class and gender roles were explored via satire.
