"What I know about myself is that I don not follow any kind of program and that there is just the inexplicable desire to capture what I see and feel and to find a pure expression for it.“ (Schmidt-Rottluff in: "Kunst und Künstler“, Berlin XII, year 1914. Survey: "Das Neue Programm“; quote from: Günther Thiem/Armin Zweite, Karl: Karl Schmidt-Rottluff. Retrospektive, Munich 1989, p. 85.) [CE]
