as an art teacher I find these images inspiring and my students love working from them and creating their own portraits in a similar style.

Portrait 11" x 8" min. One page intro and two pages about the artists. The rest is 144 pages of black and white reproductions, one to a page. The repro work is excellent and the black print is sharp and dense. The paper is suitably off-white though a bit thin with some slight show through. The selection is strong and varied. Most readers will find things inside they won't have seen before. This is a book you will enjoy dipping into time and again. It is excellent value.

Format: Paperback
This is a useful overview of black and white images covering the main German Expressionist artists and a few obsure ones. There is a good range of images from portraits to landscapes and as such is highly recommended for use in schools as well as those who want some inspiration for woodcut or lino printmaking.

I have a number of publications by Dover Publications of New York and, quite frankly, their quality is variable. However, the books about woodcuts which they have published reproduce the prints to a high standard. I first became interested in woodcuts from reading several of Frans Masereel's graphic stories in woodcuts and so purchased this book, published in 1994, which I found interesting and intensely moving.

The book contains more than 100 works by 30 artists printed on cream paper so as to give a good definition between the dark and light areas. There is a brief Introduction by Shane Weller, about whom there is no information, who warns readers that many of the German Expressionist artists and the publications that showed their works "had socialist or communist goals". It is disappointing that, in a book that forms part of Dover Books on Fine Art, neither the dimensions nor the locations of the woodcuts are given. The woodcuts date from 1908-1927, with the exception of earlier examples by Munch, 1896-1920 and later ones by Kirchner, 1933, and Gerhard Marcks, 1946.

The book illustrates the work of well-known and almost forgotten artists; amongst the former are Barlach, Beckmann, Campendonk, Feininger, Felixmuller, Heckel, Kirchner, Kollwitz, Marc, Munch, Nolde, Pechstein, Rolfs and Schmidt-Rottluf, whilst the latter are Erich Goldblum, Karl-Luis Heinrich-Salze, Karl Jakob Hirsch, Jerzy Hulewicz, Cesar Klein, Gerhard Marcks, Georg Mathey, Wilhelm Rudolph, Arthur Segal, Marcel Słodki, Jakob Steinhadt, Georg Tappert, Ines Wetzel and Auguste von Zitzewitz. Very brief biographical entries are included for all of the artists. In addition to Kollwitz, Ines Wetzel, Auguste von Zitzewitz and Karl-Luis Heinrich-Salze (Katharina Heise) are female.

this is a very interesting book, though it arrived a bit late. The quality was good, with surprising imagery from the great german expressionists. when you study history of the 20th century, you are interested in woodcuts and you like the expressionists, this is a must see. pity there is so little writing and context.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is essentially a book of illustrations - of woodcuts, over 100 of them, prefaced by a minimal description of the German expressionist scene. The illustrations are excellent quality, but the non-expert such as myself would have appreciated more of a narrative to accompany the excellent graphics.
