Ludwig Meidner is a master of the apocalypse. Long before the devastations of the First World War, he had already seen the world in flames and depicted it so graphically that one can hardly believe the early date of creation. The graphic power with which he depicts the human will to destroy has an almost suggestive effect on the viewer. Meidner saw the world falling apart at its seams and thus caught the spirit of his time. His graphic work is characterized by an intensity that truly makes him a visionary. [EH]
