Artistic movement born in Germany, at the beginning of the 20th century, which puts its art’s emphasis on expressing emotions and feelings.
Unlike Impressionism, which sought to represent visible reality, captured from the outside in, Expressionism represents invisible (spiritual) realities, performing art from the inside out.
As an art of the spirit, Expressionism is a reflection of the troubled times that preceded and accompanied the First World War.
“Figurative language of simplified, purposefully deformed and sharpened forms, contoured by black lines and filled with colours, sometimes “pure”, violent and contrasted, sometimes dark and “dirty”, antinaturalistic.”
Among the greatest Expressionism artists, the following stand out: August Macke, Robert Delaunay, Franz Marc, Wassily Kandinsky, Amedeo Modigliani, Edvard Munch, and Paul Klee.
