Monday Morning Museum: Expressionism

Expressionism – Germany circa 1905 to the 1940s
Expressionism was a modernist movement, initially in poetry and painting, originating in Germany at the beginning of the 20th century. Its typical trait is to present the world solely from a subjective perspective, distorting it radically for emotional effect in order to evoke moods or ideas. – Wikipedia.org

In addition to Franz Marc (see art example below), other artists using Expressionism are Wassily Wassilyevich Kandinsky, George Grosz and Amadeo Modigliani
