Ernst Ludwig Kirchner (1880–1938), a founding member of the Die Brücke group and one of Expressionism’s most important artists, has had a lasting influence on classic modern art. Now, theStädel Museum is honoring the work of this painter, graphic artist, and sculptor by presenting the first large-scale retrospective in Germany in thirty years.
The original audio guide for this important exhibition and its slim companion volume of color plates contain extensive descriptions of about thirty-five works from all of the artist’s creative phases. Starting with the Kirchner collection at the Städel Museum , whose numerous masterpieces make it one of the most substantial in the world, the publication also contains key works from prominent international museums, providing a vivid introduction to Kirchner’s eventful life and his oeuvre.

Expressionism

Expressionism is a way of articulating the soul: during this period, paintings of the real world were often distorted, abstract, and rendered in powerful colors.
