The first retrospective of the work of German expressionist Ernst Ludwig Kirchner in sixteen years is on view at the Neue Galerie in New York this fall.
Franz Marc and August Macke were both young artists—twenty-nine and twenty-three, respectively—when they first met in Munich in January 1910. Marc was Bavarian and Macke was from the Rhineland. They soon became friends and visited each other’s studios in and near Munich. They shared many affiliations, friends, and interests.
