[Translate to English:] Pechstein malte

Pechstein painted in a fast manner. It was precisely this immediacy and originality in art and life that the young painters of the artists' group "Brücke", which was founded in Dresden in 1905, sought. The popular model Fränzi poses in a bathing costume in a summer landscape. The schematic drawing of the bathers in the background was inspired by carving art from the Palau Islands from the Museum für Völkerkunde Dresden.

The fleeting nature of the sketch appeared to the artists to be more true-to-life and authentic than academic painting. Erich Heckel's "Young Man and Girl" from 1909 shows how sketch-like elements found their way into painting. The artists wanted to let luminous colour work as its own expressive value in large areas. Karl Schmidt-Rottluff consistently shows this in his landscape "Roter Giebel".

[Translate to English:] Impulse, künstlerische Formen

The members of the "Brücke", which until 1907 included Emil Nolde, received impulses to understand artistic forms more simply and generously by studying African and Oceanic art. Nolde's painting "Wooden Figure" from 1912 shows how freely and associatively the painter was able to deal with models and suggestions.
