An expressionist painter and prodigious printmaker, Pechstein studied in Dresden and joined the newly-formed Die Brucke in 1906 at the invitation of Erich Heckel. He also did some interior design and stained glass work. In February, 1921, Pechstein exhibited over 40 of his paintings at Galerie Goyert in Cologne. Although sometimes referred to as a poster, this woodblock was likely printed as the cover of the catalogue for the exhibition, which would have been in conjunction with sculptures by Rudolph Belling.
