Expressionism - photo 1


Expressionism is an artistic movement that emerged in Europe at the turn of the 20th century and abandoned objectivity for a deep dive into the subjective realm of emotions and reactions. Artists of this movement used strong, bold brushstrokes and geometric shapes to convey stark forms, departing from the delicate brushwork of their Impressionist predecessors.

Characterized by a heightened use of color and often radical distortion of reality, Expressionism sought to evoke certain moods or ideas, drawing inspiration from spirituality, mysticism, and the philosophical musings of figures such as Nietzsche. The style was a reaction to the anxieties of modernity, reflecting a desire for authenticity and spirituality in a rapidly changing world.
