Sketch for Theatre.

Pen and ink on cream wove paper, 1934. 493x273 mm; 19 1/2x10 3/4 inches. Signed and dated in ink, lower right recto. Inscribed "Sketch for 'Theatre'--painting destroyed" in pencil, lower center recto.

Kuhn was very critical of his own work and often detroyed many of his paintings. This drawing documents a painting presumably destroyed by the artist.
