Johann Baptist Kirner

At the barbers, 1832 - 1837

About the object

The spacious interior is hardly reminiscent of a "barber's shop". The barber, his shirt open and his stockings rolled down, seems to be making a house call. He is busy tonsuring his customer's hair with a razor. A biretta, the traditional headdress of Christian clergymen, sits on a stool.
