For more than twenty years, Pechstein traveled to the Baltic coast every summer. The pipe at the corner of his mouth, tanned brown and tattooed anchor, that was the look of the passionate fisher Pechstein who spent his rests in the original nature with their beach lakes and the fishing boats in the harbor to the end of his life.

Max Pechstein (1881-1955) is considered to be one of the most important representatives of German Expressionism and the "bridge". As a successful graduate of the Academy, he joined in the spring of 1906, the legendary artist group founded the previous year by Kirchner, Schmidt-Rottluff and Heckel and Bleyl. Pechstein's "Red House officials" was auctioned at Sotheby's for 419.000 British Pounds in 1999.

Artistic movement that replaced the Impressionism in the early 20th century.

Expressionism is the German form of the art revolution in painting, graphics and sculpture, which found its precursor in the works of Paul Cézanne, Vincent van Gogh and Paul Gauguin in the late 19th century. The Expressionists tried to advance to the basic elements of painting. With vibrant, unbroken colors in large areas and with the emphasis on line and the resulting targeted suggestive expressiveness they fought against the artistic taste established by bourgeoisie.

The most important representatives of Expressionism were the founders of "Die Brücke" (The Bridge): Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Erich Heckel, Karl Schmidt-Rottluff, Max Pechstein, Otto Mueller and Franz Marc, August Macke, among others.

Masters of Viennese Expressionism are Egon Schiele and Oskar Kokoschka.

The Fauvism is the French form of Expressionism.
