This exhibition (on view August 3-November 10, 2008) seeks to bring together German Expressionist Ernst Ludwig Kirchner's renowned Street Scenes series, created between 1913 and 1915. Considered by many to be the highpoint of Kirchner's career as a whole, this series of seven to nine paintings is showcased with forty to fifty related prints and drawings.
