Two Pantaloni Turning Their Backs, etching

From The Director's Prism: E. T. A. Hoffmann and the Russian Theatrical Avant-Garde by Dassia N. Posner


  • Two identical male figures in distorted poses and half masks dance in the same position from opposite perspectives.

    This etching comes from Callot’s Capricci di varie figure di Iacopo Callot, the Florence set (c. 1617), which also features a number of etchings with contrasting foreground and background planes.
