Religion was a topic of particular importance for many artists at the beginning of the 20th century. Especially Emil Nolde, Karl Schmidt-Rottluff and Max Beckmann produced a number of major works of a religious nature in the period around the First World War. In their depiction of motifs from the Old and New Testaments, especially in woodcuttings and etchings, they were uniquely successful in presenting the psychological substance of the scenes.

The catalogue presents especially Expressionist printed graphic works together with thematically related water colors and drawings.
