Expressionnism. (About 1892)

The concept first of all indicates in a general way a table or a work of art to the very expressive character. With the more strict direction the expressionnism indicates an artistic and literary current beginning of the XXe century. Esthetics of paroxysm, the expressionnism appears by the need for épanchement for a subjectivity marked by the feeling for the suffering and the tragedy. Its average plastics are founded on deformations and stylizations which seek a maximum of expressive intensity. Painting expressionnist seeks to renew the modern art and wants to be a reaction to the imitative character of the tendencies of the XIXe century (naturalism, traditional painting of workshop, impressionism).
