In Memory of a Friend Killed in Action
(Andenken an einen gefallenen Freund); or Portrait of wounded brother-in-law Martin Tube
Artist: Max Beckmann (1884 - 1950)
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.
