Styles & Periods
Die Brücke

From 1905 to 1930 a movement called Expressionism took hold of the visual arts in Germany. Expressionism drew upon artists of the Post-Impressionist period, as well as the Northern traditions of medieval sculpture and children’s folktales. Vincent van Gogh, Paul Gauguin and Edvard Munch all contributed with their canvases invested with brutish and candid emotions. The genesis of the movement occurred when a new artists’ alliance, known as Die Brücke, formed in Dresden. This short-lived, but important group, including Emil Nolde and Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, was intrigued by the arts of Africa and Oceania, and created work with raw, garish colors. The group Der Blaue Reiter formed in 1911 under the leadership of Wassily Kandinsky and Franz Marc. These artists further pushed the limits of abstracted emotion. Expressionism remained vital until World War I, when the physical and psychological damages of war caused a spiritual emptiness that melted away the fluid creativity of the Expressionists.

Great for illustrations!!!
- Dave Y. in Houston, TX
Love the copper and will be buying the others!I have been wanting copper post cap solar lights and they are just too pricey, I found a 2 pack of inexpensive solar lights, they were brown and we all know what happens to that plastic after baking in the Sun, then it occurred to me that I had the copper and I figured I'd try it on the lights, it covered beautifully in 2 coats. I wasn't sure if I had to seal them until now, but I used Krylon Maxx Clear Satin Spray Paint on them,and to my surprise, the spray instantly turned the copper a beautiful pinkish patina that happens naturally on copper. I will be doing this on my new deck lights before they are mounted, it is really beautiful!
