Max Pechstein (1881-1955) was one of the most prominent artists of German Expressionism. Hailed by some contemporaries as the leading member of the Brücke group, Pechstein played a central role in the German Avantgarde during the first decades of the twentieth century. He was the best-selling member of Brücke and a decisive catalyst for the group’s development.
