Oppenheimer, who had begun signing works MOPP by 1911, was initially friendly with both (Oskar) Kokoschka and (Egon) Schiele. But this poster, which he designed for his first Munich exhibition, brought accusations of plagiarism from Kokoschka, who found its subject—a gaunt, naked self-portrait figure bleeding from a chest wound—too close to his own agonized poster of a year earlier (images below). | quoted from MoMA

Die 11 Scharfrichter

Thomas Theodor Heine :: Marya Delvard. Die 11 Scharfrichter. The Eleven Executioners was the first popular cabaret in Germany, and its subject matter was political humour. Marya Delvard used to sing underneath a single spotlight, creating a performance that was both chilling and enticing. This poster is from a 1902 performance. | src The Guardian
