Intended as art's response to a new way of life and a new image of humankind, Expressionism reduced everything to the essential and concentrated on the inner concept. Warming the egg was "Die Brücke", a group of four rebellious German art students who put their heads together in Dresden in 1905. Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Karl Schmidt-Rottluff, Erich Heckel and Fritz Bleyl were later joined by Max Pechstein, Emil Nolde and Otto Mueller to create works of art of arbitrarily distorted form and colour which conveyed a "heightened reality".
Until September, the Brücke Museum will be putting on an exhibition of what it believes best displays the quality and variety of this brave form of 20th century art. This veritable potpourri of the movement's best masterpieces also contains works from its students and artistic friends alike.
