Two women look out at us from this painting by the German Expressionist Ernst Ludwig Kirchner. Their fashionable attire and cool demeanor identify them as city dwellers.The audacious colors and bold forms you see here are characteristic of Die Brücke, or the Bridge, an Expressionist group Kirchner of which considered himself to be the leader. The vivid background that frames the women’s figures generates a jarring visual sensation, suggesting the strangeness of city life. [Ernst Ludwig Kirchner (Germany, 1880-1938), Two Women, 1911-1912/1922, Gift of B. Gerald Cantor] #lacma #germanexpressionism #kirchner #?
