The Cleveland Museum of Art acquires German Expressionist painting at auction

In this painting, Davringhausen imagines war as an apocalyptic vision of tiny black figures—some apparently armed—engulfed in a collapsing vortex of burning buildings. The artist intensified the painting’s impact through the use of modernist compositional devices such as a vibrant, abstracted palette combined with intersecting geometric planes that appear shattered like shards of broken glass. This painting represents a significant contribution to the theme of apocalyptic war scenes painted by fellow German Expressionists such as Wassily Kandinsky and Otto Dix, and stands out as a masterful merging of German Expressionist emotion with Futurist and Cubist formal devices.
