Item description for Expressionism (Taschen Basic Art) by Norbert Wolf...
Overview Expressionism is a style of art in which the intention is not to reproduce a subject accurately, but instead to portray it in such a way as to expressthe inner state of the artist. The movement is also associated with Germany in particular, and was influenced by such emotionally-charged styles as Symbolism, Favism and Cubism.
During the first two decades of the 20th century, many artists famously experimented with nonrepresentational expression. Taking cues from ideas hinted as by artists such as El Greco, Goya, Van Gogh, and Munch, Expressionists sought to transform reality rather than depict it in any sort of literal fashion. Egon Schiele, Max Beckmann, Paul Klee, and Wassily Kandinsky are among Expressionism's most famous exponents.
