Expressionism is a direction in art that developed and gained particular popularity at the beginning of the 20th century. The name of this trend comes from the Latin "expressio", which means "to express". The main idea of expressionism is to express the artist's feelings, to reflect his deep self, and thus to influence the recipient and the emotional sphere of his psyche. This trend was opposed to naturalism, impressionism and constructivist tendencies. He postulated the "renewal of art", freeing himself from what is imposed by external reality and reconstructing it and presenting it in his work. The paintings created in the style of expressionism are characterized by strong, sharply outlined objects outlines and a representation of the world and deformed figures to emphasize their ugliness, so that they were to become more human and real. Expressionist artists used intense, bright, suggestive colors, often in contrasting sets. Often the form itself was more important to them than the content of the picture. The end of expressionism is considered to be the time immediately after World War I, when the economic situation changed dramatically (associated with high inflation, misery and financial crisis, often resulting in the inability to continue artistic work due to lack of livelihood) and social and expectations of art, which the result was interest in a new trend - dadaism. Our gallery Touch of Art offers for sale expressionist paintings of outstanding Polish and foreign artists. We invite you to browse our rich assortment.
