This exhibition includes works by Max Beckmann, George Grosz, K├Ąthe Kollwitz, Franz Marc, Emil Nolde, Egon Schiele and Karl Schmidt-Rottluff on loan from the Barber Institute of Art, University of Birmingham. Many of the artists featured in the exhibition were asssociated with German Expressionism. The works respond to the First World War and its aftermath using familiar print techniques such as woodcut and drypoint with an innovative simplicity and directness to evoke powerful emotional states.
