Broken Brushes: German Art from the Kaiser to Hitler: Works on Paper from the Kopriva Collection

March 21, 2013 - August 4, 2013

The Yellowstone Art Museum is privileged to host Broken Brushes: German Art from the Kaiser to Hitler.  The exhibition focuses on one of the most prolific, significant, and inventive periods of German art history, the time when the emotionally charged Expressionist movement took hold.  This intense period includes many twentieth-century heavy hitters who were either Germans or whose contributions as part of the pre-World War II art scene helped to define German art.  They include Max Beckman, Lovis Corinth, Otto Dix, Lyonel Feininger, George Grosz, Johannes Itten, Wassily Kandinsky, Ernst Kirchner, Paul Klee, Oskar Kokoschka, Käthe Kollwitz, Franz Marc, Edvard Munch, Gabriele Munter, Emil Nolde, and others.  These artists came to be politically persecuted, and many emigrated from Germany (some to the U.S.).  Today they are remembered among the greatest of European artists of all time.
