From the periodical Der Bildermann, vol. 1, no. 9 (Aug 1916), published by Paul Cassirer.

A founding member of Die Brücke, Kirchner believed that all artists should print their own work, rather than rely on a master printer. He also felt that lithography should be more than simply a reproduction of a drawing; here, Kirchner deliberately sought the effect of “bad printing” by smudging and eroding lines after they were put down onto the stone.
