Kneeling Nude in front of Red Screen (verso: Seated Nude with Bent Leg)  1912

by Ernst Ludwig Kirchner

The female nude, whether depicted in the studio or in a nature setting, was one of the favourite subjects of Kirchner and his colleagues of the Die Brücke group, especially during the Dresden and Berlin periods. Only during his final years in Switzerland did Kirchner focus exclusively on landscape and almost completely eschew the human figure. [url=http://www.museothyssen....
