Max Pechstein, Under the Trees, 1911
Max Pechstein, one of the earlier German Expressionists and a member of Die Brucke, painted works which had a fauvist influence. This one, on the other hand, actually reminds me very much of Edward Munch. Pechstein, who was accused by Nolde of being Jewish, had to prove that he had no Jewish lineage to the Prussian Academy of Art, but he was still vilified as a degenerate artist. He was not a hero in any sense, making efforts to lie low politically. He also did not seem particularly concerned by antisemitism for Jews but only when it was directed at himself.
