German and Austrian Prints: 1890–1925

December 15 to March 3 | Leslie and Johanna Garfield Gallery

At the beginning of the 20th century, German and Austrian artists sought novel ways of looking at the world that departed radically from classical ideals. World War I became a turning point for artists determined to transform the look of art. From late-19th-century exoticism to Die Brucke and Der Blaue Reiter to New Objectivity, the period was one of unprecedented experimentation and personal expression. This selection of works from the collection of a University of Wisconsin alumna will survey the breadth of German and Austrian printmaking during the period.
