Museum of Fine Arts, Boston‘s Today’s Memory
Ernst Ludwig Kirchner’s birthday
Originally shared by Museum of Fine Arts, Boston
German Expressionist Ernst Ludwig #Kirchner was born #OnThisDay in 1880. His „Reclining Nude” (1909) embodies the #Expressionist ideal—brilliant, exaggerated color; a deliberate roughness of texture; and the freshness of a sketch retained in the finished work.
