Expressionism in art


            Expressionism began 1905 in Europe eight years before the first German Expression Film The student of Prague debuted. Expressionist art reflected a state of mind and subjective feelings over objective observations. Symbolic colors and exaggerated imagery. German expressionism often focused on the darker side of human psyche.

Germany expressionism Started with Kirchner and Nolde.


Die Brucke is a group of German expressionists, which met in Dresden. Their name means bridge, which symbolizes them as a bridge for new artists to explore. Ernst Ludwig Kirchner was the leader of the group and would make paintings commenting on society in cities like the Berlin street scene( the painting above ),” convey hostile, alienating world with distorted figures and colors.”(Sister Wendy Beckett)  Their artwork wasn’t as cohesive and later the group broke up because of differing visions.
