Emmy Hennings, Letter to Reinhold Rudolf Junghanns, 1916
Concerning the opening of the Cabaret Voltaire, the Dadaists
appealed “to Zurich’s young artists to attend and make suggestions and
contributions regardless of a special art movement” (Neue Zürcher Zeitung, Züricher Post).
Emmy Hennings’s letter to her artist colleague Reinhold Rudolf
Junghanns in Munich from late January, early February 1916 was also
written with the intention of interesting artists for the Cabaret and
obtaining contributions from them. Hennings had met Junghanns in Munich
in 1911 and modelled for him until 1914. The portfolio mentioned in the
letter was probably not exhibited. The portfolio Variationen über ein weibliches Thema
(Variations on a Female Theme, 1913) published by Kurt Wolff comprised
partly shocking portrait drawings of the artist’s “emsi model.” Art
critics described the works as studies of a hysterical woman which
pitilessly render the subject’s fits and perversity. Junghanns, for his
part, saw Hennings as a “‘fantastic model’ in the purest sense of the
word, anything but well-behaved, yet extraordinarily stimulating.” He
also made drawings depicting the dancers Mary Wigman and Clotilde von
Derp, both of whom were in touch with the Dadaists. Henning’s request
for a doll from Lotte Pritzel expressed in the letter stands to reason:
she had met Pritzel in Munich’s circle of bohemians, and also made
puppets (depicted in Cabaret Voltaire), which she presented at Dada events.
Redesign of Emsie (M/C) because a 707 fic I may or may not end up writing… may or may not require her to be developed as an OC rather than a reader self insert… haha… but anyway she’s cute, I love her, and I’ll probably draw a lot more of her in the future ~
I was gonna do something more serious but then this happened…
