Salomé’s story was the subject of a play by Oscar Wilde that premiered in Paris in 1896. Salomé takes a perverse fancy for John the Baptist, and causes him to be executed when John spurns her affections. In the finale, Salomé takes up John’s severed head and kisses it. Here, Kirchner replaces John with Pierrot.
