Ernst Ludwig Kirchner (1880-1938), a founding member of the Die Brucke group and one of Expressionism's most important artists, has had a lasting influence on classic modern art. Now, the Stadel Museum is honoring the work of this painter, graphic artist, and sculptor by presenting the first large-scale retrospective in Germany in 30 years. The original audio guide for this important exhibition and its slim companion volume of color plates contain extensive descriptions of about 35 works from all of the artist's creative phases. Starting with the Kirchner collection at the Stadel Museum, whose numerous masterpieces make it one of the most substantial in the world, the publication also contains key works from prominent international museums, providing a vivid introduction to Kirchner's eventful life and his oeuvre.
