From Kollwitz to Grosz, artists associated with German Expressionism in the early decades of the 20th century took up printmaking with a collective fervour, revolutionising the mediums of etching and lithography to stark effect. This show features 40 outstanding prints from Germany by Max Beckmann, George Grosz, Käthe Kollwitz and Karl Schmidt-Rottluff.
