Ernst Ludwig Kirchner "Berlin Street Scene"

This is an oil on canvas painting created by Ernst Ludwig Kirchner in 1913. The painting depicts a street scene where anonymous men are lurking around the female prostitutes. I chose this painting because I thought it was very unique how their bodies and faces are stretched which distorts their shape. I love Kirchner's use of outlining throughout the painting such as the pink shadows surrounding most of the figures. I also thought it was interesting how the blacks look very charcoal like and most of his brush strokes were very jagged.
