1905 to 1940's

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 express the inner state of the artist. The movement is associated with Germany in particular, and was influenced by such emotionally-charged styles as Symbolism, Fauvism, and Cubism, with roots in African cultures. There are several different and somewhat overlapping groups of Expressionist artists, including Die Brücke (The Bridge), Der Blaue Reiter (The Blue Rider), Die Neue Sachlichkeit (The New Objectivity), and the Bauhaus School. Leading Expressionists included Wassily Kandinsky, George Grosz, Franz Marc, and Amedeo Modigliani. In the mid-20th century, Abstract Expressionism, (in which there is no subject at all, but instead pure form) was developed into an extremely influential style.
