About the periodical

Heather Hess, German Expressionist Digital Archive Project, German Expressionism: Works from the Collection. 2011.

In 1916, reflecting the increasing weariness with World War I in Germany, Paul Cassirer Verlag replaced the hawkish periodical Kriegszeit with Der Bildermann, a new publication whose goal was "to bring a broad public directly in touch with art." Der Bildermann featured original lithographs that addressed a range of subjects, not just the war, as an answer to the growing call for beauty as the conflict dragged on. Leo Kestenberg, a pianist and pacifist, ran the journal while Cassirer served in the army. The artist Max Slevogt suggested the periodical's title, which means "the picture man," and designed the vignette on the masthead, which shows a man peddling broadsheets to eager soldiers and civilians of all ages and stations.

Der Bildermann balanced a preponderance of allegorical animal scenes by August Gaul with edgier Expressionist works by former Brücke artists—Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Erich Heckel, and Otto Mueller—and monumental images of Death by Ernst Barlach. Oskar Kokoschka, who had been severely injured on the Eastern Front, contributed six prints on the Passion of Christ, focusing on the human capacity to inflict suffering. The publication also featured socially critical print series by Slevogt and Ottomar Starke.

Dwindling subscriptions, coupled with increasing difficulties with censors and the bureaucracy, led Cassirer to cease publication of Der Bildermann after only eighteen issues.

Various Artists with Walther Klemm (German, 1883–1957), Ernst Barlach (German, 1870–1938), Erich Heckel (German, 1883–1970), Max Liebermann (German, 1847–1935), August Gaul (German, 1869–1921), Willy Jaeckel (German, 1888–1944), Josef Bato (Hungarian, 1888–1966), Ernst Ludwig Kirchner (German, 1880–1938), Heinrich Zille (German, 1858–1929), Oskar Kokoschka (Austrian, 1886–1980), Käthe Kollwitz (German, 1867–1945), Otto Mueller (German, 1874–1930), Max Slevogt (German, 1868–1932), Ottomar Starke (German, 1886–1962), Wilhelm Wagner (German, 1887–1968), Leopold von Kalckreuth (German, 1855–1928), Rudolf Grossmann (German, 1882–1941)
