Self-Portraits: Ernst Ludwig Kirchner

December 14, 2017

The artists looked at German expressionist Ernst Ludwig Kirchner for their inspiration this week. They agreed that it was very sad that he died thinking he was an outcast after Hitler had announced his art to be degenerate and over 600 pieces were destroyed. Ernst thought that the Nazis were coming for him when they invaded a nearby village and so he shot himself. Now he is one of Germany's most revered artists. The kids sketched their profiles and added the things that they value most in life. It ranged from family to The Beano 😆
