The publication of this opulent volume coincides with the first retrospective of the works of Ernst Ludwig Kirchner (1880–1938) to be seen inGermany in thirty years and presents masterpieces from large museums and private collections throughout the world. It naturally includes the nudes from his time as a member of the Die Brücke group, paintings depicting big-city life in Berlin, the street scenes reflecting the existential fears prevalent during World War I, and the Swiss mountain scenes from Davos. However, the book also presents less familiar early and late works by Kirchner. The paintings are flanked by his works on paper and his sculptures, demonstrating the rich diversity of the artist’s oeuvre.With essays by renowned art historians, this definitive study opens up a new perspective on the astonishing modernism of Kirchner, a man whose overindulgent life found unequalled expression in his art.
