In art history, the Expressionist movement originated in 20th century Germany. Expressionism aims to represent the world subjectively from the artist's abstract perspective, often distorting reality and aiming to evoke a strong emotive reaction. Now these original works can be enjoyed in poster and art print format.
A number of Expressionist groups formed in Germany, including 'Der Blaue Reiter' and 'Die Brücke'. Wassily Kandinsky, one of the main artists at the time, sought to use powerful colors and abstract shapes in his art in order to evoke dramatic feelings and moods for the spectator. Such techniques are also evident in the works of the famous Expressionist artist Marc Chagall, whose motifs include animals, human flight and biblical scenes. The bright colors and lack of dimension and space gives the images an abstract and dream-like quality.
