Expressionism - Art Prints, Paintings & Posters
Expressionism in Art - Characteristics, Artists and ArtworksExpressionism is an artistic movement that emerged in Germany at the beginning of the 20th century. It is characterized by a subjective and emotional approach to art, in which the artist seeks to express their inner feelings and experiences rather than creating a realistic representation of the world. Expressionist art is often characterized by bold colors, distorted forms, and strong brushstrokes. Artists working in this style were interested in exploring the human condition and the darker aspects of human nature, such as fear, anxiety, and alienation. Some of the most important expressionist artists include Edvard Munch, Wassily Kandinsky, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, and Emil Nolde. Munch is best known for his iconic painting "The Scream," which is a vivid expression of fear and despair. Kandinsky is known for his abstract paintings, in which he explored the relationship between color and emotion. Kirchner and Nolde were both members of the influential Die Brücke (The Bridge) group, which was founded in 1905 and aimed to create a new form of expressionist art. Other notable expressionist artworks include Kirchner's "Street, Berlin," Nolde's "The Prophet," and Franz Marc's "Blue Horses." The expressionist movement had a profound impact on modern art, influencing later movements such as Abstract Expressionism and Neo-Expressionism.
