This is a very complete, highly visual and thoroughly annotated presentation on the Expressionist art movement which began in Germany in the early part of the 20th Century.

I have included 20 actual slides in the preview. This gives you the best idea of what this product is like.

EXCERPT 1 FROM PROGRAM (BULLET POINTS ON Expressionism)
~modernist movement in Europe, initially in poetry and painting
~began in Germany at the beginning of the 20th century with various subgroups, next slide. Some of these artists could not work in groups though so remained lone wolves
~presents the world solely from a subjective perspective
~distorts perspective radically for emotional effect in order to evoke moods or ideas.
~individuals and groups with varying styles who wanted to make an intense personal expression with their art form.
~hated the mores of the bourgeois as well as the desiccated state-sponsored art academies.
~style was: boldly simplified or distorted forms; exaggerated or clashing colors; direct and startling imagery

Excerpt 2: Bullet Points for artist Vasily Kandinsky
~"Of all the arts, abstract painting is the most difficult. It demands that you know how to draw well, that you have a heightened sensitivity for composition and for colors, and that you be a true poet. This last is essential.”
~Russian painter and art theorist.
~painted one of the first purely abstract works.
~successful lawyer until he began painting studies (life-drawing, sketching and anatomy) at the age of 30 and changed his life’s direction.
~professionally and personally involved for 12 years with artist Gabriele Münter, who saved his art work from the Nazis.

Excerpt Expressionist artist George Grosz, Bullet Points:
~German expressionist artist
~caricatural drawings and paintings of Berlin life in the 1920s
~member of the Berlin Dada and New Objectivity group
~studied at Dresden Academy of Fine Arts and Berlin College of Arts and Crafts
~emigrated to the United States in 1933 because he was anti-Nazi; left Germany shortly before Hitler came to power
~taught at the Art Students League intermittently until 1955.
~“My Drawings expressed my despair, hate and disillusionment, I drew drunkards; puking men; men with clenched fists cursing at the moon. ... I drew a man, face filled with fright, washing blood from his hands ... I drew lonely little men fleeing madly through empty streets. I drew a cross-section of tenement house: through one window could be seen a man attacking his wife; through another, two people making love; from a third hung a suicide with body covered by swarming flies. I drew soldiers without noses; war cripples with crustacean-like steel arms; two medical soldiers putting a violent infantryman into a strait-jacket made of a horse blanket ... I drew a skeleton dressed as a recruit being examined for military duty. I also wrote poetry.”
