Description

In this surrealist work, the apocalypse is occurring before our eyes. Upon what appears to be a hanging piece of rent parchment is a depiction of a wall of boxed suites at the opera house. A female torso reclining on the stage is nothing more than draped and folded paper being enveloped by the falling parchment backdrop. This etching is striking its play of light against dark and the juxtaposition of tonal roulette lines against crisp etched lines.
