About this artwork

This scene shows a group of men seated at a table in a cabaret club, their hats and coats hung up on the wall. The dancer is so close to them that they seem to have to lean back to avoid her high kick. The angular style of the lithograph is typical of German expressionist works of this period. Kirchner was a prolific printmaker, although he usually made just a few impressions of each piece as he liked to print his work himself. Only one other impression of this rare lithograph is thought to exist.
