If you look on the right side of the painting, I love that he's caught halfway out of the composition. They responded both to past artists such as , and , as well as contemporary international movements. The exhibition is on view from July 26 through September 17, 2007. Created during the Die Brucke era, the work exemplifies the energetic atmosphere of a meeting in Kirchner's studio, a recurrent scene in his pictures. Everything here will be different in a moment and there's something sort of wonderful about that.
The features of the two monumental figures in Berlin Street Scene are recognizably modeled after the sisters. By late 1911, the principal artists of Brücke had moved from the relatively genteel city of Dresden to the teeming metropolis of Berlin, by then the third largest city in Europe, following London and Paris. But if you had it, you shared it. Perhaps it was just his nature. The conscious decision to leave white areas unrefined, making the process of carving visible, is a rejection of conventional academic teaching, a philosophy typified by Die Brucke. As well, the series includes drawings in ink, pastel, and charcoal, along with prints and sketchbook studies. In woodcuts, Five Cocottes 1914 and Women on Potsdamer Platz 1914 , Kirchner seems to have closely followed the compositions of the related paintings.
In May 1913, after finding only moderate success there, and with the individual artists developing along their own paths, the Brücke group disbanded, after eight years of working closely together. Instead, the woman has been joined by companions, all striding forward and implying a kind of solidarity among those who prowled the streets of nighttime Berlin. Kirchen, he's really focusing on that authentic, kind of direct engagement with the experience of the city, the electric, the movement. Their group was one of the seminal ones which in due course had a major impact on the evolution of modern art in the 20th century and created the style of. The street Why settle for a paper print when you can add sophistication to your rooms with a high quality 100% hand-painted oil painting on canvas at wholesale price? Their clothes flow into one another and their non-distinct facial features cause you to connect with the women because they are the only two with a sense of identity. It also investigates the significance of the streetwalker as the dominant motif of this series, and provides insight on its relationship to Kirchner's wider oeuvre.
Since 1908 what was then the capital of the empire had been home to Otto Müller, a member of the group from 1910, and Max Pechstein, who had settled there after returning from Italy in 1908. In 1938 he committed suicide. Women dressed in elaborate fur coats and hats with plumage are transformed by the green glow of a streetlamp.

From then on, he committed himself to art. Photo by Ellen Page Wilson. You see them surrounded by this relatively faceless anonymous mask right of these black garbed suited men. Hommage to a Mexican poet. As the most extensive consideration of these paintings in English, this richly illustrated volume examines the creative process undertaken by the artist as he explored his themes through various media and presents a major body of related work including drawings, pen-and-ink studies, pastels, etchings, woodcuts and lithographs.
Unlike the other Street Scene paintings, where usual signs of city life are kept at the periphery, the monumental Potsdamer Platz 1914 is set in a recognizable spot in early twentieth-century Berlin—specifically Potsdamer Platz, as identified by the red train station and rounded building housing a café seen in the background. The creative dynamism of prewar Berlin was not only tragically short-lived, but in retrospect it can be seen as a final flicker of carefree decadence. In the background of Kirchner's picture stands a nude who bears a resemblance to his lover of the time, Erna Schilling. There's also the way that her legs are slightly splayed and there's something very ungainly. The street—Dresden's fashionable Königstrasse—is crowded, even claustrophobically so, yet everyone seems alone.
The world of the seething metropolis fascinated Kirchner and his painting underwent a transformation in both subject matter and style. She does look out at us. The fact that this mood was captured on the eve of World War I contributes to the tensions embodied in these paintings. It starts to make me really worried about the way that modern historians look at these images. Losing himself in the anonymity of the big city, he seemed to become one with his surroundings, capturing the ephemeral energy of the streets.

The anti-naturalistic tones are common in the and his other work during this time period. A little girl is dwarfed by her hat, one in a network of eddying, whorling shapes that entwine and enmesh the human figures. Primitive sculpture undoubtedly inspired his own approach to the medium and his love of rough-hewn, partially painted surfaces. It is unusual in that it offers, for the first time, a scholarly, in-depth study of this particular body of work, as well as a superb portrayal of an apocalyptic era in a place that, in the gloom of history, will remain as incomprehensible as it was notorious. I guess to me it just seems like these isolated figures and that's what attracts them to me.
