Unable to paint following a wartime mental breakdown, the German expressionist Ernst Ludwig Kirchner (1880-1938) spent his final years recovering in picturesque Davos, Switzerland.

FLORINE STETTHEIMER

Written by Böller, Susanne
When the Museum of Modern Art sent its first exhibition to Europe, Florine Stettheimer (1871-1944) joined Georgia O'Keeffe as the only women included. Stettheimer's sensuous paintings and eccentric poetry earned her a place at the heart of the modernist avant-garde. The guest lists for her extravagant New York garden parties read like a who's who of the 1920s art scene.
