Set Design for Shakespeare’s Tempest, Dessau Period, 1930's

Artist’s note: “The forms on the Roman arches are designed to be changed into transparent, very shining colors.  The scene can be dissolved into absolute blackness so that individual forms which characterize a scene can gradually be drawn from darkness as the lights come on again.”
