Schnackenberg studied with Franz von Stück at the academy in Munich, and through his travels was exposed to the work of Toulouse-Lautrec in Paris. The two artists shared a passion for depicting nightlife, cabarets and performers, yet Schnackenberg's theatrical vision was more attuned to the prevailing German mood than that of fin-de-siècle Paris. His posters are an incarnation of the extravagance, decadence and morbidity at the center of Weimar-era indulgences. Similar to Toulouse-Lautrec, Schnackenberg left behind a visual gallery of the demimonde of Munich's nightlife, filled with peculiar performers and dancers. Schnackenberg also worked extensively on theatrical and costume design. DFP-III 2940, Avant Garde p. 116, Gallo p. 220, Takashimaya 150, Dance Posters 48, Kery p. 290, Zeitzieger p. 97.
