100 years ago Max Pechstein’s iconic Expressionist woodcut Zwiesprache (Dialogue or Interaction between two people) was released to the public.

This founding member of the Brücke artists’ group had experienced the sufferings of the First World War when he was in the army on the Somme in 1916. After the War he looked back to more idyllic times and returned to images of man in nature

The Brücke artists were inspired by the forms of the rich cultures of the African continent and South East Asia.  Pechstein had travelled to the Palau islands in the Pacific before the war and after 1918 divided his time between Berlin and the North German coast where he could be closer to nature.

This is one of the finest examples of Pechstein’s very rare colour woodcuts.  There are examples of this print in various museums including the Victoria & Albert Museum, London and The Museum of Modern Art, New York.
