Ernst Kirchner, Berlin Street Scene, 1913 Things to keep in mind when studying: This is an example of what movement? What profession do these women engage in? How do they interact with the men in the scene? Be able to discuss Kirchner’s style + nationality as it relates to the movement
German painter, printmaker sculptor. Ernst Ludwig Kirchner is one of the leading figure in Die Brücke, which was active in Dresden and Berlin from 1905 to 1913. His pictures of urban life have become the incarnation of the nervously agitated modern state of mind in Europe on the eve of World War I. After 1917, with his depictions of the Swiss mountain landscape of Davos and its inhabitants, he made one of the most important contributions to landscape painting in the 20th century.
