GOODWILL ART GUIDE — Key Modern Art Styles

Expressionism is an umbrella term covering the modernist art, writing, music and architecture produced in Europe during the first quarter of the 20th century

A telling characteristic of Expressionist painting is its colourful, unconventional look. It has been said that the Impressionists ‘saw’ and the Expressionists ‘felt’. Painters now dared to express their own, highly subjective, feelings on canvas. Looking to African and Oceanic art for ideas, and Post-Impressionism for techniques, these artists developed a new visual language: colour, distortion and abstraction, through which they created a rapport with the viewer. These works struck a chord with contemporary art collectors.
