Overview

Expressionism is less a style than a "trend"; it represents how one particular young generation "expressed" its feeling for life. In the early 1920s, the Expressionist artists -- especially in Germany, but also in other European countries -- sought to give expression to elemental experiences in an entirely new way. Max Pechstein said the driving force behind Expressionism was the desire to shock and provoke: the rebellion of youth against an ingrained outlook. Today, Expressionism is regarded as one of the most central movements in 20th-century art.
