Seven nude female figures stand contrapposto in loose formation, perhaps the title of the painting is a reference the raunchy play by fellow German Arthur Schnitzler. Item #FA00115.

After completing his early education in Switzerland, he went to the Art Academy in Frankfurt, Germany; and subsequently became stage designer at the Frankfurt Opera.
