Johann Baptist Kirner

Young Black Forest woman, listening (with sewing box and blouse), vor 1846

About the object

Kirner prepared the individual figures in the painting Die Kartenschlägerin (The Fortune-Teller) with great care in terms of posture and apparel. He approached the representation of the eavesdropper behind the wall in a series of three drawings. Unnoticed, she follows the fortune-teller's reading - only the viewer catches her in the act.
