Alpine Kitchen  1918

by Ernst Ludwig Kirchner

The trauma of the war and the fact he was declared unfit for active service plunged Kirchner into a deep physical and mental crisis that led him to voluntary retirement in Switzerland in 1917. The artist took refuge in the mountains by the village of Frauenkirch , near Davos , where his painting underwent a transformation and became filled with new themes. [url=http://www....
