Kirctner ..the past with the new..German Expressionism…influencial modern art!
Their group was one of the seminal ones, which in due course had a major impact on the evolution of modern art in the 20th century and created the style of Expressionism.5 The group met initially in Kirchner’s first studio, which had previously been a butcher’s shop. Bleyl described it as:
“ that of a real bohemian, full of paintings lying all over the place, drawings, books and artist’s materials — much more like an artist’s romantic lodgings than the home of a well-organised architecture student.4 ”
Kirchner’s studio became a venue which overthrew social conventions to allow casual love-making and frequent nudity.4 Group life-drawing sessions took place using models from the social circle, rather than professionals, and choosing quarter-hour poses to encourage spontaneity.4 Bleyl described one such model, Isabella, a fifteen-year-old girl from the neighbourhood, as “a very lively, beautifully built, joyous individual, without any deformation caused by the silly fashion of the corset and completely suitable to our artistic demands, especially in the blossoming condition of her girlish buds.”6
