Retrospective of one of the pioneers of expressionism, who showed in his art the loss of human individuality in the era of industrialisation. The exhibition includes his magnum opus: the cycle “Frieze of Life”, showing various stages and aspects of human existence. You can see a total of about 120 works by the artist, including his most famous paintings, such as The Scream, Madonna and The Kiss, and also experiments with graphic art: lithographs, etchings and woodcuts. The items brought together in Albertina allow you to see his innovative approach to this medium: starting from the choice of wood and paper, through the process of printing, to the final work on the finished prints.
