Ernst Ludwig Kirchner - Tänzerin im Varieté

[ translate ]

Ernst Ludwig Kirchner

Tänzerin im Varieté
Circa 1909

Coloured oil crayons and pencil on sketchbook paper with rounded corners. 16.5 x 21 cm. Verso stamped "NACHLASS E.L.KIRCHNER" (Lugt 1570 b) and with annotation "K1333 C5365". - In good condition with fresh colours. Insignificant traces of use. Minimally browned to the lower margin on the right.

The sketchbook sheet "Dancer in a Variety Theatre" comes from sketchbook 9, which contains another "Varietészene" (p. 63). A third related wax crayon drawing, which was also presumably taken from the sketchbook by Kirchner himself, is now in the Städel Museum in Frankfurt (fig. exhib. cat. Kirchner, Städel Museum, Frankfurt 2010, cat. 14, p. 78). These two sketches were evidently made during a visit to a variety theatre and complement each other. While our drawing shows the stage from the front, the Städel drawing shows the scenery from the left side of the stage and includes a piano player at a black piano.
