Ernst Ludwig Kirchner (6 May 1880 – 15 June 1938) was a German Expressionist painter and printmaker, and one of the founders of the artistic group Die Brücke ("The Bridge"), a key group leading to the foundation of Expressionism in 20th-century art. He volunteered for army service in the First World War, but soon suffered a breakdown and was discharged. In 1933, his work was deemed "degenerate" by the Nazis; four years later, over 600 of his works were auctioned off or destroyed. In 1938, he committed suicide by gunshot.
