German Expressionism | Featured

At its roots German Expressionism is art that championed strength as much as solace, sexuality as much as spirituality, the purity of nature and the imperfect beauty of the human condition, and that would defy the rigit mores of a highly conservative society. It was, in hindsight, a remarkably modern and liberal vision, and one that seems increasingly relevant to today's unstable world.

Among the many techniques and processes emplyoyed within German Expressionism - oil paintings, etchings, lithography, drypoint - perhaps their most iconic remain their woodcuts. Preferred especially by Kandinsky and the Brücke group, the woodcut offered a medium that in every element of its production reflected the ethos of the Expressionist movement.
