Ernst Ludwig Kirschner’s Erna with Cigarette, shown above, is an example of Expressionist artwork. Listen to Berg’s Expressionist music, Piano Sonata, Op. 1, while examining Kirschner’s painting. Do you think Expressionist music effectively complements Expressionist art? Can you think of any other piece of music that would effectively accompany this artwork?
