This work dates to early in Kirchner’s prolific career, when he was a founding member of the expressionist group called Die Brücke, or The Bridge, in Dresden in 1905. In this painting, Kirchner has depicted two nudes in a natural setting, rather than in the contrived space of an academic studio. This work is also an example of the artist’s use of bold, often crude, forms and vibrant color.
