“12 August 1916”

110mm x 80mm photograph. Note on reverse (title).

Monet once travelled to London to see smog on the Thames. Dürer once risked six days on a freezing boat to paint a whale washed up on a beach. Artists such as Chardin and Morandi rarely left their studios, finding everything they needed at home. This painter has dropped by a Feldluftschiffer unit to paint one of their Parseval-Siegsfeld observation balloons.

"An anatomical miracle that appeared for 15 days in Berlin theaters and for 1 month in Circus Schumann – With x-ray and photograph."

A talented member of Kaiser Alexander Garde-Grenadier-Regiment Nr.1 demonstrates his gift for sword swallowing by downing a Hirschfänger – a long, double-edged hunting knife used to kill deer and boar.
