Movement Overview

Expressionism, originating in early 20th-century Germany, emphasised subjective expression over realistic representation. Pioneers such as Edvard Munch and Egon Schiele used distorted forms and vivid colours to evoke emotional responses. This movement reflected a desire to depict the internal psychological state, rather than the external world, influencing later movements like Abstract Expressionism and shaping modern art's emotional and psychological depth.
