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?
