Edition: 250 – Signed by artist
The artists. Original etching by Adolf Schinnerer, hand-signed in pencil. Printed on Japan paper by Heinrich Wetteroth, Munich. From the edition of 250 published in Jahresmappe der Freunde Graphischer Künst, Nuremberg 1927. These high wire artists walking a tightrope across a Bavarian town square are perhaps emblematic of fine artists. The public is enjoying the show in complete indifference to the man plunging from the rope on the right, or the two corpses being carried away by undertakers in top hat and tails at the bottom left... and yet still the artists doggedly climb the ladder to try their luck. Condition: Excellent.
