"Yellow and black knitwear“Max Pekhshtein from the Brucke Museum in Berlin is one of the exhibits of expressionist painting. As part of the collaboration, he will be temporarily exhibited in Dresden along with four other major works from Berlin.
Pechstein drew quickly. It is this immediacy and originality in art and life that the young artists of the Brücke group, founded in Dresden in 1905, sought.
The popular model Fränzi poses in a bathing suit in a summer landscape. The conceptual image of bathers in the background was inspired by the art of carving from the Palau Islands.
The 1909 Boy and Girl Eric Haeckel shows a sketchy introduction to painting. This is also consistently demonstrated by Karl Schmidt-Rottluf in his landscape Rother Doom.
Members of the Brücke, which included Emil Nolde until 1907, received an impetus for a simpler and more generous interpretation of art forms through the study of African and oceanic art. Nolde’s painting “Wooden Figure” of 1912 shows how freely and associative the artist knew how to handle models and proposals.
