A stage-design by Ernst Stern for Antigone (1917)  written by the Germn playwright Walter Hasenclever (1890 - 1940) and produced around 1920




"At first, Hasenclever was pro-war and volunteered for military service; soon, however, he came to reject the war. He simulated mental illness and was released from duty in 1917. That same year he was presented with the Kleist Prize for his passionate adaptation of Sophocles' Antigone."
