However, I realized that it was unfair for me to be prejudiced towards the earlier German artists and to discount their ability to preserve in their works of art the late 19th and early 20th century German civilization which was later destroyed during WWII. Ernst Ludwig Kirchner was born in Aschaffenburg, Bavaria. The tilting downward of the perspective and the opposing diagonals in the brushwork create distortion and a sense of motion. Berlin had a population over 2 million, comparable to Paris at that time.

The Potsdamer Platz can be traced back to and was built upon a road dating back to the Middle Ages running from Paris to St. You can thank them only through work. In most cases, work here has reached the ideal standard of being done with love. Ina border dividing East and West Berlin was built straight across this Platz that we see in the painting.

Inhis work was branded as "degenerate" by the Nazis and inover of his works were sold or destroyed. Kirchner uses some anti-naturalistic color in this piece including the skin of the figures which varies between shades of pink and orange as well as the blue and pink shades in the scenery. Here Kirchner discovered new motifs - city and street scenes. This stylistic choice also makes you feel closer to the women while farther away from the anonymous male figures in the background.

This interest came about after my recent studies on the German occupation of France from the effects of the civilian experience of Occupied France and the German reconstruction after WWII.

This article was most recently revised and updated by Virginia GorlinskiAssociate Editor.

His late landscapes are often allegorical, showing human beings unencumbered by civilization and at peace with nature. Group life-drawing sessions took place using models from the social circle, rather than professionals, and choosing quarter-hour poses to encourage spontaneity.

The mass of men in the background do not have any identifying features, but instead appear as a copy of each other. Primitive art was also important in directing Kirchner to a more simplified treatment of form.

Key Ideas The human figure was central to Kirchner's art. In Kirchner moved to Berlin. At the height of his career, with accolades coming from across Europe and the United States alike, the Germans deemed his artwork degenerate and confiscated works from museums. Kirchner claimed to have artistic independence in the style of his work, but influence from earlier avant-garde movements is visible.

While Indian Buddhist painting and African sculpture became the two major sources of his new vocabulary of nervous, jagged forms, the streets of Berlin and the fashionable life of the city became a new motif, joining earlier themes of landscapes, portraits, nudes, and dancers.

Kirchner continued studies in Munich —, returning to Dresden in to complete his degree. And, most commonly, he depicted the figure in movement, since he believed that this better expressed the fullness and vitality of the human body.
