Emil Nolde and Die Brücke

January 2015


The group known as Die Brücke, or The Bridge, a name chosen to symbolize the group’s intended mission, was founded June 7, 1905, by Fritz Bleyl, Erich Heckel, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner and Karl Schmidt-Rottluff. Each with a distinctive style, the young artists were united by their common ideals and shared rejection of traditionally accepted academic tenets, opting instead for a more spontaneous and organic approach.
