Kirchner and the Berlin StreetBook - 2008
Ernst Ludwig Kirchner's Berlin Street Scenes painting series is widely understood as a metaphor for modernity itself through its depiction of life in a major metropolis. This illustrated volume examines the creative process undertaken by the artist as he explored his theme in various mediums, and presents a major body of related drawings, pen-and-ink studies, pastels, etchings, woodcuts, and lithographs. An essay by Deboray Wye investigates the significance of the streetwalker as the primary motif of this series, and provides insight into the series in the context of Kirchner's wider oeuvre. --publisher.
