    Image Series of 27 Lithographies on E. Barlach's Drama ›The Dead Day‹

  • In 1910, influenced by his fights with Rosa Schwab about who would have the custody of their son Nikolaus, Ernst Barlach wrote the drama The Dead Day. The play, which takes place in mythical times, deals with the liberation of the son from the control of his mother and served as the basis for this extensive series made two years after the play was written. In it there are depictions which are clearly related to its literary model but also those that Barlach added.
