Summary, etc.:
"In June 1905, four young architecture students in Dresden gave their eruption onto the art scene a name: Brücke (Bridge). The group were united by their protest against established and sclerotic forms of art, adn by their yearning to bring art and life together. Life studies in the studio and free drawing in the open air were the starting-points of their artistic endeavour. For the Expressionist artists of the Brücke, the human being is at the centre of creation. Today, the fascination of this human image comes across more strongly than ever, both because it is authentic and also because it is able to reach out and address this existential condition of each and every beholder."
