Summary This volume, published in conjunction with the Milwaukee Museum of Art's Granvil and Marcia Specks collection, presents a collection of the Museum's German Expressionist prints. German Expressionism refers to a creative movement beginning in Germany before the First World War that reached a peak in Berlin, during the 1920s. The author has included a body of imagery that reveals the myriad concerns of the age -- the joys and the pain of life in Germany from the 1890s to the 1930s. The prints of Kathe Kollwitz, Karl Schmidt-Rottluff, George Grosz and Lionel Feininger are only a few of the wide range of artists whose work reflected the fragile years from the Second Empire to the rise of the Nazis. This work showcases etchings and drypoints of biting spontaneity and intensity, lithographs of corrosive ingenuity, and woodcuts to stir the soul heralded an era of individuality and democracy.
