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

Loïe Fuller by Toulouse-Lautrec

Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (French, 1864-1901) :: Miss Loïe Fuller, 1893. Brush and spatter lithograph printed in five colors on wove paper. Loïe Fuller was famous in turn-of-the-century Paris for her dazzling performances which combined dance, colored electric lights, and music. In this print, inspired by her appearance at the Folies Bergère, Lautrec captures the decorative effect of her billowing silk gown, which she manipulated with large poles held in her hands. Lautrec executed about sixty versions of this print in a variety of colored inks, including gold and silver. | src The Met
Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (French, 1864-1901) :: Miss Loïe Fuller, 1893. Color lithograph. Parisian audiences were captivated by Loïe Fuller (1862–1928) whose unique performances involved manipulating voluminous translucent gowns with the aid of large poles in each hand. Fuller danced in a specially designed space featuring a glass floor illuminated from below and surrounded by mirrors. Electric lights of various colors projected onto the stage created an ethereal, swirling effect. Fuller’s extraordinary dance was the subject of Toulouse-Lautrec’s most abstract lithograph. The artist used layers of colored ink—including some metallic tones—to convey the movement and energy of Fuller’s performances. | src The Cleveland Museum of Art and Flickr
