Frasi Ernst Ludwig Kirchner

„The heaviest burden of all is the presence of the war and the increasing superficiality. It gives me incessantly the impression of a bloody carnival... I am now like the whores, I once painted [in his Berlin-time]: the merest brushstroke now, gone tomorrow. Nonetheless I am still trying to put my thoughts in order and, from all the confusion, create an image of time, which is my task, after all.“

— Ernst Ludwig Kirchner
in a letter from the sanatorium in Köningstein, Taunus, to Gustav Schiefler, 12 November 1916; as quoted in War, art and crisis: Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, 1914 – 1918, National Gallery of Art, Washington D.C. 2003, p. 28 in the Summer of 1915 Kirchner volunteered the German army, but soon suffered a breakdown and was discharged


„I begin with movement... I believe that all human visual experiences are born from movement..“

— Ernst Ludwig Kirchner

(original German version: 'Es fiel mir schwer, so plötzlich abzureisen, da ich dies Jahr vollständig in der Landschaft und dem Leben da oben aufging und nur fast ohne Bewusstsein zuzugreifen brauchte.') as quoted in: Ernst Ludwig Kirchner: ein Künstlerleben in Selbstzeugnissen, Andreas Gabelmann; Hatje Cantz Verlag, Ostfildern, Germany 2010, p. 41 (transl. Claire Albiez ) As Kirchner had been busying himself with nature images since the Summer of 1913, the outbreak of World War 1. brought him back to reality; as he describes here

„I see possibilities for a whole new way of painting, in which planes are used more freely. Weaving and embroidery make this possible.“

— Ernst Ludwig Kirchner
variant of Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam in [ 'Family – Ernst Ludwig Kirchner']


„Believing in development, in a new generation of those who create and those who enjoy, we call together the youth of today. And as a youth which bears the future, we aim to create space to live and work, as opposition to the well-established, older powers. Everyone who reproduces, directly and without illusion, whatever he senses the urge to create, belongs to us.“

— Ernst Ludwig Kirchner

„to study the nude, the foundation of all pictorial art, in total freedom and naturalness. From.... this basis there emerged the feeling, shared by all, of taking creative stimulus from life itself and submitting to the decisive experience.“
