Die Bruecke, a group formed in Dresden in 1905, was one of two early associations of Expressionist artists in Germany, the other being Der blaue Reiter group in Munich. Their name—“the bridge”—expressed their desire to create an artistic bridge between the past and the present, and indeed the group revived old art forms, such as the woodcut, while aligning itself with international avant garde movements in the arts. This is the first group exhibition catalog issued by Die Bruecke, published by the Galerie Arnold in Dresden. The catalog contains woodcuts by Erich Heckel, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Max Pechstein, and Karl Schmidt-Rottluff, as well as a woodcut by Kirchner listing members of the group. An interesting feature of the woodcuts printed here is that each artist interpreted the work of a fellow member.
