Expressionism An art movement dominant in Germany from 1905-1925 featuring the tendency of an artist to distort reality for an emotional effect. Expressionism reflects the artist’s state of mind rather than the reality of the external world. The goal is not to reproduce the surrounding world, but instead to strongly impose the artist’s own sensibility to the world’s representation. The artist accomplishes this aim through distortion, exaggeration, and fantasy and through the vivid, jarring, violent, or dynamic application of formal elements. Expressionism can be defined as a stylistic art that uses intense color, agitated brushstrokes and disjointed space.
