Ernst Ludwig Kirchner and the Grandeur of Mountains

Works from the Kirchner Museum, Davos

Unable to paint following a wartime mental breakdown, the German expressionist Ernst Ludwig Kirchner (1880–1938) spent his final years recovering in picturesque Davos, Switzerland. Life among the Alps inspired Kirchner to reinvent himself, and for the next two decades his work basked in visionary mountainous landscapes as well as the everyday lives of rural farmers. Featuring the 1920 painting Returning Herd of Goats from the Fondazione Gabriele e Anna Braglia and showcasing selected works from the collection at the Kirchner Museum Davos, Kirchner and the Grandeur ofMountains traces the artist’s personal and creative transformation in the Alpine landscape and with its people.
