- Neo-expressionism is considered either late-modernist or early-postmodern painting and sculpture.
- The movement began in Germany where it was called Neue Wilde (New Wild).
- The 'New Fauves' was another name for these artists because of the bright colors and rawer style and materials.
- This is intensely subjective art. Unlike the Abstract Expressionists who who were accused of having no content, this art just about screams its content.
- Conceptual and minimal art, which preceded it, also did not have this visceral content.
- This movement did not intellectualize itself whereas Conceptual and Minimal art were very intellectual (both criticized as light on content while heavy on thought).
- These art works use recognizable objects but in different ways, often in controversial and overtly sexual ways.
- There are parts of other art movements in it. Thus, there are pieces of the following: German Expressionists, American Lyrical Abstraction painting, Abstract Expressionism and Pop Art.
- The style emerged internationally instead of in America.
- Although Americans may not have started this movement, they made up for it by the number of artists, amount of work and importance of work they churned out when they joined the movement.
- The worthwhileness of this movement is still under debate.
- The art critics had a lot to say against it pertaining to hot button social and economic issues of the time. The critics felt that this art was being thrown onto the art market to feed an art buying frenzy then ongoing—that there was no other reason for it.
- The critics also noticed the movement had an emphasis on media celebrity, a backlash against feminism, and an anti-intellectual attitude.
- Women were ignored in the movement at a time when they were gaining in most other careers.
- The movement began just as the AIDS crisis became public.
- Sexuality is dealt with in just about every way possible in this movement.
- Not everyone agrees about which artists should be included in this movement. The names of the artists shift considerably as to who is included and who is not.
