Max Pechstein: Illustrated Book "Body, Color, Light"

In spring of 1906, Max Pechstein joined the artist group "Die Bruecke" ("The Bridge"), founded a year before by Kirchner, Heckel, Schmidt-Rottluff, and Bleyl. The portrayal of a human was in the central point of their activity, a subject that was taken up by Pechstein. For the first time, the human images by the artist are chronologically presented in this volume. In this way, it becomes clear how the artist increasingly freed the male and female bodies in the course of his artistic development from the block of stylistic and social conventions. Starting from his beginnings, rooted in Art Nouveau and symbolism, to expressionist nudes and works from the 1950s, the paintings convey an authentic, new body feeling that is particularly evident in rousing dance and nude scenes to the modern-day viewer.
Hg. Nicole Fritz for the Ravensburg Art Museum. With contributions by Nicole Fritz, Petra Lewey, Ninja Walbers.
112 pages. 80 color illustrations, 11 b/w illustrations. Format 22 x 28 cm. Bound. Published by Wienand Publishing.

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.
