In the fall of 2006, I saw the play "The Underpants” at Tulane University. It is a farce written by Carl Sternheim in 1910. The plot concerns a German bureaucrat’s wife who has the embarrassment of her underpants falling to her ankles as she waves during the course of a parade. She and her husband have a room they have advertised for rent. From that point on events become complicated.

First of all I am a sucker for farces. This image naturally comes from the underpants used in the play. They were a satin pink with pink ribbons. I merely simplified the underpants into an abstract representation with dots.


  1. Sounds like an interesting play! Cool painting.

  3. Very nice and cool painting. Intutive ideas to creat painting by using dots.
