The "Brücke" artists

Cabinet exhibition on Expressionism
Running time: November 16, 2019 through to August 2, 2020 (extended)

The foundation of the “Brücke” artist group in Dresden in 1905 marked the advent of Modernism in Germany. Many of the group’s members such as Erich Heckel, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Karl Schmidt-Rottluff – and later also Otto Mueller and Emil Nolde – are now the best known and most loved artists of Expressionism. They rebelled against traditional notions of painting and academic traditions and revolutionized the art of the early 20th century.

The cabinet exhibition is dedicated to the work of this influential group. By means of select paintings, drawings, prints and photographs from the Lehmbruck Museum’s extensive collection, the show conveys a comprehensive insight into the life and work of these exceptional artists.
