165 woodcuts. Masereel's woodcut series, which were mainly of sociocritical content and of expressionistic formal concept, brought Masereel international acknowledgment. Among them were his so-called image novels including 'Passion eines Menschen,' 'Mein Stundenbuch,' 'Die Sonne,' 'Die Idee,' and 'Geschichte ohne Worte,' which all date from the 1920s. During this same time Masereel also drew illustrations for famous works of world literature by Thomas Mann, Emile Zola and Stefan Zweig.
