Exhibition History:

CPLH, the Bruno & Sadie Adriani Memorial Exhibition, Sept 18 - Nov 14, 1976.

A tavern, with beamed ceiling and plain wooden table and wooden stools: Mephistopheles is showing his skills of sorcery, to the amazement of six men of various classes -- a student, a soldier etc. A fire is burning on the cellar floor, where a pitcher and a drinking glass have fallen; a pipelike object has been driven into the edge of the table, and a spray of liquid is gushing onto the flames. (Virginia K. Anderson 01/21/94)
