From Timothy O. Benson's essay:

"What Rifkind has called his "wild passion at midnight" ultimately produced the most important private collection of German Expressionist graphics in the world."

"Far from haphazard...it included drawings by Käthe Kollwitz; spectacular works by Emil Nolde, crucial works from the Brücke annual portfolios, including Ernst Ludwig Kirchner's Bathers Tossing Reeds (p. 75); and Erich Heckel's Standing Child (p. 57). Additional highlights included core works by the Blaue Reiter, such as Wassily Kandinsky's poster for the first Phalanx exhibition (p. 67), Franz Marc's The Birth of Horses (p. 89), and Gabriele Münters Aurelie (p. 101)"
