From the periodical Kriegszeit. Künstlerflugblätter (no. 11, November 4, 1914).

On August 31, just 30 days after Germany joined the Triple Alliance, Paul Cassirer published the first edition of Der Kriegszeit (Wartime), a weekly magazine featuring contemporary artists’ responses to the war, which were largely enthusiastic in the conflict’s early stages. This lithograph commemorated the brother-in-law of artist Max Beckmann, who had died fighting on the Eastern Front.
