About this course:

Although expressive elements are a common quality of art, it was not until the 19th and early 20th century that they became a main component of artistic output. Among the first artists to express their personal feelings through their art was Edvard Munch, who, along with others, would go on to inspire an entire movement of Expressionism throughout Europe in the early 20th century. In this course, we look at the origins and development of Expressionism as a movement, with an emphasis on German Expressionism as reflected in the movements of Die Brücke and Der Blaue Reiter, as well as the Austrian Expressionism of Gustav Klimt among others.
