German expressionist painter, born near Zwickau. Associated with both Die Brucke (The Bridge) group (see Brucke, Die) in Dresden and the Neue Sezession in Berlin, Max Pechstein painted landscapes, still lifes, portraits, and beach scenes. Inspired by aboriginal art, he used bright undiluted colors and vigorous brushstrokes. Pechstein's oil paintings tended to be more eclectic, more naturalistic, and less innovative than the work of other expressionists.
