Just in time for some weekend viewing, New York’s Neue Galerie is opening an incredible exhibition of German Expressionism. The show examines themes of primitivism and modernity, two poles of Expressionism that artists employed to free themselves from the academic conventions of the 19th century.
The engagement of these artists with the zeitgeist of the early 20th
century in Germany led them to paint emotionally charged, often contrasting scenes. On display will be both lively depictions of cabaret and circus culture, as well as cityscapes of lonely, alienating Berlin streets.
Be prepared to see work by acknowledged greats such as Max Beckmann, Otto Dix, George Grosz, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, and Paul Klee!
