This print is from GENIUS: Zeitschrift fur 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, and Richard Seewald was an important member of this movement. This is a good impression from the first (and rarest) year of Genius. Not signed.
