Ernst Ludwig Kirchner foi um pintor expressionista alemão. Foi um dos fundadores do grupo de pintura expressionista Die Brücke. Influenciado pelo cubismo e fauvismo, o pintor alemão deu formas geométricas às cores e despojou-as de sua função decorativa por meio de contrastes agressivos, com o fim de manifestar sua verdadeira visão da realidade.

Citações Ernst Ludwig Kirchner

„The heaviest burden of all is the presence of the war and the increasing superficiality. It gives me incessantly the impression of a bloody carnival... I am now like the whores, I once painted [in his Berlin-time]: the merest brushstroke now, gone tomorrow. Nonetheless I am still trying to put my thoughts in order and, from all the confusion, create an image of time, which is my task, after all.“

—  Ernst Ludwig Kirchner
in a letter from the sanatorium in Köningstein, Taunus, to Gustav Schiefler, 12 November 1916; as quoted in War, art and crisis: Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, 1914 – 1918, National Gallery of Art, Washington D.C. 2003, p. 28 in the Summer of 1915 Kirchner volunteered the German army, but soon suffered a breakdown and was discharged


„[that all differences among the former Brücke members should be put in the past and that].. every individual conflict must be silenced and that everyone join together in the name of the whole, that is for our modern German art.“

In a letter to , 1937; as quoted in Brücke und Berlin: 100 Jahre Expressionismus, Anita Beloubek-Hammer, ed.; Berlin: Nicolaische Verlagsbuchhandlung, Berlin 2005, p. 338 (transl. (transl. Claire Albiez) When die Brücke was shown at the infamous 'Degenerate Art' show in Munich by the Nazi's in 1937, Kirchner wrote this to Hans Fehr

„After lengthy struggles I now find myself here [Dr Kohnstamm's sanatorium in Königstein, in Taunus] for a time to put my mind into some kind of order. It is a terribly difficult thing, of course, to be among strangers so much of the day. But perhaps I'll be able to see and create something new. For the time being, I would like more peace and absolute seclusion. Of course, I long more and more for my work and my studio. Theories may be all very well for keeping a spiritual balance, but they are grey and shadowy compared with work and life.“

Letter from Königstein, Taunus to Dr. Karl Hagemann, January 1916 (friend and patron in Leverkusen and collector of his art); as quoted in the biography-pdf of the Kirchner museum, Davos Kirchner suffered then a serious mental breakdown and was also afraid for being drafted once more in the German army, so back in the war

„Bloated, one [=Kirchner himself] staggers off to work, where all work is in vain and the onslaught of mediocrity flattens everything. Like the cocottes that I painted, that is how one is now. Wiped out, next time gone.“

„to study the nude, the foundation of all pictorial art, in total freedom and naturalness. From.... this basis there emerged the feeling, shared by all, of taking creative stimulus from life itself and submitting to the decisive experience.“
