Ernst Ludwig Kirchner - Ballhaus mit tanzenden Mädchen
Ernst Ludwig Kirchner
Ballhaus mit tanzenden Mädchen
Graphite and oil crayon drawing on paper, mounted on card 11 x 9.2 cm Framed under glass. Blue stamp "NACHLASS E.L. KIRCHNER" verso on card, therein inscribed "FS Dre/Be 6" in black ink (Lugt 1570c).
The small colour pencil drawing was created during a visit to a ballroom variety either in Dresden or later in Berlin. Kirchner captured the rapidly changing impressions in sketches, characterised by the rapidness that he described as the "ecstasy of first sight".
We would like to thank Gerd Presler, Weingarten, for his advice.
