By 1911, Kirchner, Heckel, and Schmidt-Rottluff had moved to Berlin to pursue individual careers, and Die Brücke had ceased to exist as a unified movement—yet, independently, each artist maintained a style that respected the rigor of his expressionist origins. Kirchner continued to be an innovative, prolific printmaker, ultimately producing more than two thousand woodcuts, etchings, and lithographs.
