pleased to meet you: ernst ludwig kirchner

portrait | one | two | three | four | five | six | seven (self portrait)

I have a color crush on this artist.
he was a German Expressionist who was one of the founders of Die Brucke, an influential group that lead to the foundation of Expressionism.
A tragic part of his personal history: in 1933 the Nazi's deemed his work "degenerate" and 600 of his works were sold or destroyed (!)
