Expressionism
Expressionism began in Germany, Expressionism is one of the main currents of art that begin the later 19th and the 20th centuries.
At the end of the 19th century, this Expressionist spirit resurfaced in the paintings of two awkward and isolated personalities one was the Dutchman, Vincent Van Gogh and the other a Norwegian, Edvard Munch. While the Impressionists were admiring the colour and beauty of the natural landscape, Van Gogh and Munch took a radically different perspective. They chose to look inwards to discover a form of "self-expression" that offered them an individual voice in a world that they perceived as both insecure and hostile. It was this more subjective search for a personal emotional truth that drove them on and ultimately paved the way for the Expressionist art forms of the 20th century that explored the inner landscape of the soul.
