About

Xylograph on beige heavy paper. Signed in pencil by the artist on the lower right margin, Edition of 75 prints, published in Berlin by Fritz Gurlitt in 1920 for the suite “H.M.Pechstein Holzschnitte 1919”. Single state. Excellent impression with very dense ink. Wide margins and excellent overall conditions of sheet. Max Pechstein (Zwickau, 1881- Berlin, 1955), German Expressionist painter and printmaker, Max Pechstein is known above all for his boldly colored nudes and landscapes. Primarily working in the Impressionist tradition, after joining the group of the Die Brücke together with E.L. Kirchner and H. Heckle, he began painting in a vibrant Fauvist palette. In a similar way as Gauguin, Pechstein was influenced by primitive art of other cultures after visiting the Dresden Ethnographical Museum. When the artist traveled to Italy (1907) he was struck by Giotto’s paintings and Etruscan art; when he travelled to the Palau Islands in the South Pacific (1914) He could experience first-hand the exotic culture. Unfortunately, in 1933 Pechstein's art was deemed "degenerate" with all the linked consequences by the Nazi regime.Today, Pechstein's works are part of the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, The Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Albertina in Vienna, and the Von der Heydt Museum in Wuppertal, Germany. Pechstein once affirmed: “Art is not a pastime, it is a duty with respect to the people, a public affair,” Reference: Fechter, H144; Kruger, H208.
