Expressionist Art

Expressionism is described as an attempt to represent the psyche, or inner spirit, and its emotions.  It emerged as a response to the increasing industrialism of the early 1900’s, inspired, perhaps, by the earlier emergence of psychoanalysis in the late 1800s.  According to an interview published in the Italian magazine Contemporary, Italian writer Alberto Nino Arbasin described Expressionalism as much like Baroque except “expressionism doesn’t shun the violently unpleasant effect, while Baroque does. Expressionism throws some terrific ‘fuck yous’, Baroque doesn’t. Baroque is well-mannered.” (Contemporary:On the Cherry Tree. Conversing literature and cinema with Alberto Arbasino)
