German Expressionism Library

German Expressionism Library

Vivid and chaotic coloration; themes of insanity, obsession and euphoria; dense, frenetic cityscapes and morbid interiors: these are the abiding preoccupations of Expressionist painting. It was in Germany, as the emerging discipline of psychoanalysis collided with the aftershock of the First World War to yield new vocabularies for the portrayal of the private individual’s inner life, that Expressionism attained its most extreme incarnation. Inspired by the example of Vincent van Gogh and Edvard Munch, German painters like Max Beckmann and Ernst Ludwig Kirchner created electrifying canvases that articulated excesses of joy, angst or melancholy. Our German Expressionism library includes the foremost publications on this movement and its various strands in cinema, literature and theatre.

The featured image is Ernst Ludwig Kirchner's 1919 painting "Alp Hut; Red Alp House," held in the collection of the Staatliche Kunsthalle Karlsruhe. The house and hut, located in Stafelalp in Switzerland, were Kirchner's residences following his departure from Berlin in 1917. See Hatje Cantz's definitive Kirchner retrospective below.
