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.
