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.
