Karl Schmidt-Rottluff Blauer Mond, 1920 Öl auf Leinwand 75,5 x 89 cm Brücke-Museum Berlin
German expressionist painter and printmaker Karl Schmidt-Rottluff is known as one of the four founder-members of the artist group Die Brücke.
His works are part of many major collections in the world, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Neue Galerie, New York; the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
In 2011, the Neue Nationalgalerie returned two paintings by Schmidt-Rottluff, a 1920 self-portrait and a 1910 landscape titled Farm in Dangast, to the heirs of Robert Graetz, a Berlin businessman who was deported by the Nazis to Poland in 1942.
