Publicidade

Max Hermann Pechstein , pintor expressionista alemão e artista gráfico.

Formado na Academia de Dresde e na Kunstgewerbeschule, em 1906 foi integrado em Die Brücke. Trabalhou num expressionismo moderado, influenciado pela pintura fauvista francesa, especialmente por Matisse. Em 1908 deslocou-se a Berlim onde participou da fundação da Neue Secession, o que o levou a ser expulso de Die Brücke em 1912. Os seus temas favoritos relacionam-se ao exotismo e à união com a natureza, motivo pelo qual visitou as ilhas Palau do Pacífico em 1914. Ligou-se com Der Blaue Reiter, sendo um dos membros do grupo que mais cedo alcançou a popularidade. Após a Primeira Guerra Mundial fez parte do Novembergruppe, ensinando na Academia das Artes da Prússia até a chegada do nazismo, que o retirou dos seus cargos e o condenou ao ostracismo. Em 1945 foi reabilitado e trabalhou como professor da Escola Superior de Artes Figurativas.

„Now I drew as wildly during my tramps [during his walks through the Saxonian countryside] as I has fought before. [in his early youth]“

— Max Pechstein
As quoted in German Expressionist Painting, Peter Selz, University of California Press, 1974, p. 90

„We [the artists of Die Brücke ] were overjoyed to discover our complete unison in the urge for liberation, for an art surging forward, unrestricted by convention.“

from a note of Pechstein; as quoted in Expressionism, a German Intuition, 1905-1920, [exhibition-catalogue 1980-81]; Paul Vogt, Horts Keller, Martin Urban, Wolf-Dieter Dube, and Eberhard Roters; Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation, 1980, p. 5

„.. the unrelenting Berlin forced each one of us to struggle through on the most individual paths, so that our communal living [of 'Brücke', in 1913] fell apart. In addition, the knowledge of the individual members had developed so far that the individual form differed, although the overall goal of the group remained the same.“

— Max Pechstein
a later quote of Pechstein; as quoted in Brücke und Berlin: 100 Jahre Expressionismus, ed. Anita Beloubek-Hammer; Nicolaische Verlagsbuchhandlung, Berlin 2005, p. 266 (transl. Claire Albiez) about the cause of the break-up of Die Brücke group in 1913: the harsh city-life of Berlin. Pechstein himself already was removed from the Brücke group in 1912 (one year before the definite break) because he went against the self-imposed rule of die Brücke to only exhibit together - when he decided to show also his art at the 'Berliner Secession'.

„It was and still is fundamental: to begin the work with the same tools with which it will be ended, without making a preliminary drawing. on the wood, stone, or metal. Sketches and drawings done in advance clarify the intention, and with it ready in the head, the requisite tool realizes the idea.“
