About

Fleeing the noise and heat of Berlin, Kirchner and his artist friends spent several summers on a remote island in the North Sea. There they both lived and painted a more bohemian existence that rejected civilization. Kirchner noted that while on the island he “learned to imagine the ultimate unity of Man and Nature.”
