All Artists in the Degenerate Art Show

A human face in anguish, with hands raised to his cheeks, looks out from the center of a visual field full of slashing diagonals and explosive triangles of color. On the left side, smoke billows.
A monumentally stylized head of a woman. Her head is tilted slighty to the viewer's right. Her eyes, nose, and lips are large and almost mask-like. She appears to be wearing a hat of a modern style. Shading is executed with powerful parallel lines and cross-hatching. The year of the work's execution, 1916, appears in the lower right.
This line drawing in black ink has a large abstract figure at the bottom right that leans back as another figure comes at it from the left, along with a ship-like motif above it. In additon, there is a large abstract form with a tiny wheel above the name "Bulz". An arrow starts from left below the large figure and points down to the lower right corner. The work is dated (u.r) "1921" in pencil and dated, numbered and titled (l.c.) in pen "1921/157 Zeichnung zum Drama der Entweiung".
Portrait head with landscape in background.
A man clothed in pants, shoes, and a long-sleeved shirt sits at a small table with his hands folded. Part of a loaf of bread sits on the upper left corner of the table. The man is in a small room with a small, square, barred window high on the wall behind him. There is a toilet without a lid behind him to his left.
