Paintings featuring the urban scene on the evening of World War I are among his well-known artworks. They are famous for the powerful depiction of eroticism and psychological tension. The crude, black-and-white wood prints, were used for illustrating magazines and books. One notable example was Der Strum, a leading German periodical.
