Brücke, Die
(German, "The Bridge")

German expressionist art movement, founded by Kirchner, Schmidt-Rottluff, and Heckel, lasting from 1905 to 1913. Influenced by the art of Jugendstil (the German equivalent of art nouveau), van Gogh, and the primitive sculpture of Africa and the South Seas, the Brücke group developed an art of fervent emotionalism.
