    German artist Willi Baumeister characterized his work from 1919 to roughly 1923 as “Wall Paintings.” In these works, the artist often employed plaster, sand, or papier mâché to create relief surfaces. This talk will take a close look at Head (1920) as a prime example from this series and note how it relates to paintings on view by Baumeister’s contemporaries, such as Max Beckmann and László Moholy-Nagy.
