Item description for Ernst Ludwig Kirchner: The Photographic Work by Eberhard Kornfeld...

Ernst Ludwig Kirchner was one of the most important painters of the Expressionist movement, but he was also a skilled photographer who documented the era's main protagonists and milieu. Ernst Ludwig Kirchner: The Photographic Work, compiled and edited by the Kirchner Museum Davos, is the first collection of his photographs, taken between 1908 and 1938. Brought together, they offer insight into the beginning of the modern age and all its contradictions, not least in the wild bohemian life of the artists, set alongside scenes of the intensely archaic Alpine world. Kirchner also attempted to portray the "model society" of contemporary artists through his portraits, including subjects such as Oskar Schlemmer, Hermann Scherer and Albert Mller; authors such as Theodor W. Bluth and Alfred Dablin; and collectors and patrons of the arts such as Carl Hagemann, Fr d ric Bauer and Botho Graef. The chronological sequence of images covers all the genres in which Kirchner worked as a photographer: self-portraits, individual and group portraits, nudes, scenes from his atelier, exhibition documentation, landscapes, installations and documentary photographs. The texts include an essay analyzing the historical and artistic context of this work and another on camera technique. The catalogue index contains formal descriptions of the photographs and their contents and an extensive register provides researchers easy access to information. A detailed biography, illustrated in part by previously unpublished photos, links the individual photographs to specific moments in Kirchner's life.
