Upon arriving in fin-de-siecle Berlin, the German artist Ernst Ludwig Kirchner began to create a series of paintings that would later be called the "Street Scenes". His depictions of this cosmopolitan metropolis included representations of prostitutes, cityscapes, and other urban sights and activities. Along with an in situ exhibition, the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) created this lively online exhibit to complement their traditional manner of display. Visitors can stroll through Kirchner's work here, offered up in areas titled "Setting the Stage", "Cities, Nudes, and Dancers", and "Street Scenes". During their travels through the exhibition visitors will find high-quality digitized versions of Kirchner's works, accompanied by brief essays. As part of their meanderings, visitors would do well to make sure and look closely at the 1913 woodcut "Somersaulting Acrobatic Dancers" and his 1914 oil painting, "Potsdamer Platz".
