Portrait of Carl Sternheim
Artist: Ernst Ludwig Kirchner (1880 - 1938)
A founding member of Die Brücke, Kirchner believed that all artists should print their own work, rather than rely on a master printer. He also felt that lithography should be more than simply a reproduction of a drawing; here, Kirchner deliberately sought the effect of “bad printing” by smudging and eroding lines after they were put down onto the stone.
