Exhibition Overview

A selection of recent acquisitions of early drypoints created between 1914 and 1922 by this German master. Included are images from the artist's portfolios Faces of 1914–18 and The Fair of 1922. The rawness of emotions and compressed spaces of these kaleidoscopic images—ranging from operating rooms to merry-go-rounds—contain the seeds of Beckmann's later oeuvre.
