View of Hirsch's studio, probably in Taxco, Mexico. In the center is a typical Mexican folk chair which was later adapted by Josef Albers. Hanging on wall: "Scared Horse", by Stefan Hirsch, oil painting. The painting was exhibited at The Downtown Gallery in 1932, forming part of a solo show which featured Hirsch's work done abroad in Mexico. Hirsch had a strong interest in folk art of the Americas. The photographer is probably Hirsch's wife, Elsa Rogo.
