This is a continuation of a previous Hilga painting. Hilga was a German nun who was banned from the convent after the discovery of an opium pipe and a substantial amount of illicit substances underneath her bed cot. Bitter and resentful about her current life’s trajectory, she carries on in a most undignified way. Going to the many seedy underworld establishments at night, while trying to portray a decent German matron has taken a toll. Although the Weimar republic is full of diversions, Hilga is never satisfied.
