These woodcuts were all produced during the early Weimar years. I originally found them in German Expressionist Woodcuts (ed. Shane Weller). The woodcut was a significant medium for Expressionist artists in this period, one reaching back to early modern practitioners such as Albrecht Dürer.
Produced at the very cusp of war, August Kaulbach’s Germania (1914) represents the visual and political antithesis of Expressionist art. Note the way in which realism is subjected to nationalist bombast. It might be worthwhile contrasting this image not only with the works of Franz Marc or George Grosz (among many others) but with Fritz Lang’s Die Nibelungen films.
This documentary (subtitle: German Cinema in the Age of the Masses) by Rüediger Suchsland– which takes its title from Siegfried Kracauer’s seminal study by the same name (pdf)– is streaming on Netflix. It’s a fantastic introduction to German Expressionist Cinema.
Woodcut by Arminius Hasemann (1926). Note that Death wears a bowler.
