Ernst Ludwig Kirchner (1880-1938) was one of the founders of the artists group Die Brücke or "The Bridge", a key group leading to the foundation of Expressionism in 20th century art. He volunteered for German army service in the First World War, but soon suffered a breakdown & was discharged. In 1933, his work was branded as "degenerate" by the Nazis. In 1937, he was asked for his resignation from the Berlin Academy of Arts, & over 600 of his works were confiscated from public museums in Germany & were sold or destroyed. In 1938, he committed suicide.
