Abstract:

"A representative volume featuring the masterpieces by Die Brücke, whose bold, expressive art heralded the birth of Expressionism in Germany. The Brücke group was founded in 1905 by four students in Dresden: Fritz Bleyl, Erich Heckel, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, and Karl Schmidt-Rottluff. The name Brücke, which means "bridge" in German, was chosen to represent their intention of linking the art of the past with that of the future. Drawing on diverse sources, ranging from medieval woodcuts to African and Oceanic art, they fused these influences into a highly distinctive style. Living and working communally, the Brücke artists shared a fervent faith in a utopian future. Through their art, they sought to restore a sense of value and unity in a fragmenting world. With their emphasis on vivid color and emotional directness, these artists gave birth to German Expressionism. Accompanying an exhibition at the Neue Galerie in New York, this publication examines the Brücke through its various manifestations: vivid renderings of rural life; candid studio portraits; and searing, critical depictions of the rapidly changing urban milieu. It demonstrates how this group of young firebrands invigorated and altered the art of their time."--Publisher description.
