Collection: Expressionism

It is characterized by a focus on the expression of emotions and subjective experience, often through bold, vivid colors and distorted forms.The movement was a response to the social, cultural, and political upheavals of the time, and sought to capture the intense emotions and anxieties of modern life. Expressionist artists rejected traditional academic styles and instead sought to create works that were deeply personal and often provocative.Expressionism had a significant impact on the development of modern art, influencing artists across Europe and beyond. Its legacy can be seen in a wide range of artistic movements, from Abstract Expressionism to Neo-Expressionism.
