This print is from GENIUS: Zeitschrift für Werdende und Alte Kunst, a deluxe art revue founded in 1919 in the aftermath of The First World War. Europe was devastated by the War, both physically and psychologically, and Expressionist art was attempting to create a new artistic idiom. This impression is from the first (and rarest) year of Genius.
