Title
The Savoy Cafe (Kafka), October 13th 1911, 1999 (oil on canvas)
Artist
Rooney, Michael (b.1944) / English
Description
From the diary of Franz Kafka: 14 October. Yesterday evening at the Savoy. Sulamith by A. Goldfaden. Really an opera, but every sung play is called an operetta, even this trifle seems to me to point to an artistic endeavor that is stubborn, hasty, and passionate for the wrong reasons, that cuts across European art in a direction that is partly arbitrary.
