- Ernst Ludwig Kirchner
- Street, Dresden
- 1908. Die Brücke/German Expressionsim.
The street was a major source of painting themes for Die Brucke. The urban for Kirchner was alienating, distancing. As opposed to the lighthearted Impressionist approach. Shocking pink from the Fauvs, but here more disturbing than calming. Ghostly hand- symbolic of dangers of syphillis? Sense of claustrophobia, vertigo
