Paper Size: 28,0 x 21,0 cm / 11.0 x 8.3 in; Apparently an allegorical scene, in which both of the figures strongly resemble the artist's wife Renata. He depicts her both as sensual, supine, and naked and as prim and proper--the artist is perhaps bemoaning his changing relationship with his wife (his first child had been born in 1902; his second in 1907). Most of the artist's work was destroyed by a bomb at the end of WWII. I have found no recorded impression of this drypoint.
