Drawing (86) from THE BASIS OF MAKE-UP

"In the segment of the circle at the lower edge of the picture a crowd on August 1, 1914, the day after the mobilization to the First World War, at the Odeonsplatz in Munich-after a photograph by Heinrich Hoffmann, who later became Adolf Hitler's personal photographer. At the top right corner, the enlargement of a detail from the picture on which Hoffmann in 1931 discovered cheering Adolf Hitler, whom he had not yet known in 1914. From bottom left to top right a dislocated human joint. From bottom right to top right tracks of human steps. They are from a unit of the French Foreign Legion mixed with those of Gary Cooper and Marlene Dietrich - on a "wandering dune in the Sahara" in the Paramount Studios in Hollywood, 1930, during the shooting of Morocco by Josef von Sternberg. In the middle of a stadium, crouching on the ground, a defeated soccer player who has pulled his shirt over his head and, with this gesture, congenially gives shape to melancholy as the peak of male sexuality."
