Piper & Co. in Munich. The portfolio was commissioned by Reinhard Piper and Julius Meier-Graefe, the founder of the Marées Gesellschaft. The program of this society included the publication of bibliophile books and portfolios with original prints, which included Gesichter of 1919 by Beckmann, and Antike Legenden by Lovis Corinth of the same year. The ten drypoints contained in Jahrmarkt were all executed in 1921 and rank amongst the most important graphic works by Max Beckmann. The great manual dexterity and tight control demanded from the drypoint provided the artist with a most effective means to communicate his conception of art vis-à-vis its relationship to the world. Many of the works in the portfolio were executed in Vienna, and are based on his visits to the Prater, the large amusement park. To Beckmann, the annual fair represented a microcosm of contemporary society. The subject matter comprises close-up views of characters of the fair as well as panoramic vistas of the fairground. By linking everyday life with the artificiality of the theatrical world, the artist tried to express life''s ephemeral existence and illusions.

middle-class family, Käthe Kollwitz focused her art on the desperate condition of the peasants and proletariat with whom she came into contact, first through literary sources and then directly through her husband’s medical practice. She explained in an interview that these subjects interested her more for aesthetic than social reasons, but she is remembered as a socially engaged artist who protested vehemently against World War I. Here again she felt some ambivalence, as she supported her son’s decision to volunteer to join the German army against her husband’s wishes. His death in Flanders shortly after enlisting became the fulcrum upon which her later art balanced. This powerful woodcut comes from her most famous series. About it she wrote in her diary, “Yet again I am not finished with the War series. Done the sheet ‘Parents’ over again. Suddenly it looks entirely bad to me. Far too bright and hard and distinct. Pain is totally dark.” Although she was dissatisfied with the outcome, the woodcut medium, its heavy black planes slashed here with stark white highlights, aptly conveys the sense of nearly uncontrollable parental grief at the loss of a child.
