Ernst Kirchner

 

 


 

Ernst Ludwig Kirchner

(b Aschaffenburg, 6 May 1880; d Frauenkirch, 15 June 1938).

German painter, printmaker and sculptor. He is one of the most important representatives of Expressionism. He was 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.
