BRÜCKE (Basic Art Series 2.0)
In the German city of Dresden on June 7, 1905, the foundation of the Die Brücke artists’group (1905–1913) is widely regarded as the birth of Expressionism. This richly illustrated book introduces this essential expressionist movement. We examine Die Brücke's key works and protagonists; its varied, international inspirations; and its crucial influence on later 20th century art. Along the way, we find candid nudes, crowded street views, and blissful bathing idylls, each of them vivid with energy and intent on a new kind of art.
