Paintings - Expressionism
Expressionism - paintings by contemporary artists in the online gallery
The reaction to the ugliness of civilization at the beginning of the 19th century, revolutionary movements and the First World War gave rise to Expressionism - such a vivid style that became a response to the ongoing madness. Expressionist artists depicted in their paintings the motives of pain, fear and ugliness of modern life, trying to evoke feelings of irritation, anxiety and disgust in the viewer through twisted lines, rough strokes of oil paints on canvas. Paintings of modern expressionists in the interior give a strong emotional color, and emphasize the imperfection of the surrounding world.
