EXPRESSIONISM

The opposite of Impression, the expressionists look inward to discover a "self-expression". They show strong emotions through nature.

A famous Norwegian painter. The second of five children of Christian Munch. His father decided Munch's abilites would enable him to pursure engineering but the young Munch became determined to follow a career in painting with a family friend's help. The dramatic paintings and graphics of Munch not only reflected his inner torment and emotions but also proved highly influential on artistic developments in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. In addition to becoming his native country’s most famous artist, Munch served as one of the main progenitors of expressionism.

Edvard Munch. The Scream. 1893. The National Gallery, Oslo. 13 December 2014.One of the most recognizable works in the history of art.The painting shows a man on a bridge with a tortuous face, behind the bridge, there is a blue landscape and a tumultuous orange sky.The brushstrokes make for a curious effect. The curving landscape is contrasted with the long straight bridge and firm upright people in the background.The sky is not orange and the landscape is not blue, but it is what Munch see with his emotions.
