One of two posters Schnackenberg designed for Peter Pathe and Maria Hagen, a Munich-based dancing duo. His other image for their performance is very straightforward, showing them dancing in tandem in an illustrative manner. But this poster represents the duo indulging in an interpretative dance of light and shadow, a twist on the 'Beauty and the Beast' theme – a far more macabre and artistic vision than Schnackenberg's other realization of the pair. Plakate Munchen 419, The Poster 128, Zeitzieger p. 174.

From the Aminoff / Faccini Estate.
