The artist as a photographer

Share:

From November 22, 2015, to May 1, 2016, the Kirchner Museum in the Swiss town of Davos, is showing the exhibition 'The artist as a photographer. Ernst Ludwig Kirchner's photographic work'.

The Kirchner Museum has a very comprehensive collection of glass and celluloid negatives of pictures taken by Ernst Ludwig Kirchner between 1908 and 1938. The museum's photographic collection includes about 1500 pieces, which, in addition to the negatives, also include vintage prints and modern prints. “The photographs are very exciting. Without copying them directly into a painting, they serve as a reminder of shapes and forms,” Ernst Ludwig Kirchner commented about his photographic ambition in 1913.

Nudes, atelier scenes and portraits
The exhibition brings together around 300 photographs representing examples of all the genres Kirchner was involved in: from nudes and atelier scenes, to portraits, landscapes and factual photography. The artist even kept an inventory of his paintings and sculptures, supplementing them with photographs of his work. In addition, he documented exhibition settings and hangings of his paintings.
