Art Talk: The Scream and Expressionist Art – K
July 25 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Emerging out of Europe at the dawn of the 20th century, Expressionist art is characterized by garish colors, flattened figures, tense linework, and distorted perspectives. The Expressionists sought to depict the world as it felt rather than how it looked, hoping to convey the isolation and anxiety of modern existence. The movement found its roots in introspective works like Edvard Munch’s The Scream, perhaps the most haunting face in all of art history. Besides for The Scream we shall also look at paintings by Wassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, Egon Schiele, and other major Expressionists of the period. If you’d like to join us, click on the link below.
