Max Pechstein: Painting "Sunset Leba Harbor" (1926), Framed

The 1926 painting "Sunset Leba Harbor" was already popular as a drawing. It shows the harbor as a place of protection and security, but at the same time the reflection of the setting sun on the water surface looks like a way out - in this way the motif gains a deeper, symbolic meaning; The port is home and departure at the same time.

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.

Giclée = derived from the French verb gicler meaning "to squirt, spray".

Giclée method is a digital printing process. It is a high-resolution, large-format printout on an inkjet printer with special different coloured or pigment-based inks (usually six to twelve). The colours are light-fast, that is, resistant to harmful UV light. They have a high richness of nuance, contrast and saturation.

The Giclée process is suitable for real art canvas, handmade and watercolor paper and for silk.

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.
