100 years ago today Germany declared war on Russia and ignited one of the deadliest conflicts in European history. Many artists romanticized war as a bringer of humanity.

But for artists like Ernst Ludwig Kirchner who fought in combat, they soon realized all humanity was lost.

"The war is catching on more and more. One only sees masks, no more faces."

In 1917, he made 11 watercolor drawings about the Apocalypse on the back of cigarette boxes. These images, 2 1/2 inches high reveal just how hopeless the war felt at the time. More on this album.
