Eugene Ionesco wrote Rhinoceros, a play considered to be a masterpiece of the Theatre of the Absurd, in which the inhabitants of a small, provincial French town turn into rhinos. The only human who does not succumb to this is the central character, and the play is often read as a response to the upsurge of totalitarianism. The play explores themes of conformity, culture, philosophy and morality. Peter Kettle painted this large image - 18"x35" - in response to the plays themes. He imagined a sculptor intending to create a monumental image of a rhinoceros beetle. The exquisite beetle is perched on a copy of the book, and seemingly looking at the crude carving with contempt. Thus, the viewer is taken a further step towards absurdity. Language: eng Language: eng 0.0 Language: eng 0.0 Language: eng 0.0 Language: eng. Buchnummer des Verkäufers ABE-4454427681
