Woodcut on Japan paper, 36,3 x 21,6 cm. Ex collection Michael Pabst, Munich.
This woodcut is one of the theatrical representations of Achmann’s wife Magdalena von Perfall, whose stage name as actress was Magda Lena. Sometimes Achmann noted the role in which Magda Lena was currently to be seen on the lower margin of the sheet, but in the present case the role is not known. Many of Achmann’s woodcuts are only known as proofs and in most cases there does not seem to be a print run. Many prints therefore remained unsigned and are rarely offered on the market.
