Styles & Periods
Expressionism

From about 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 to the movement, departing from realistic depictions of the world, and imbuing their canvases with brutish and candid emotions. The genesis of the movement occurred when a new artists’ alliance formed in Dresden, known as Die Brücke. 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, and based their work on music and feeling. 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. However, the Expressionists influenced artists for generations, including Marc Chagall and the Abstract Expressionists.

my canvas frame had a 1" frame. I wish your clips were in multiple sizes.I had to bend them a little to make them work. Five Star if you had my size.

I absolutely love these bags! I use them to protect my prints at art fairs & gallery shows. They protect my prints from environmental dirt and oil from fingertips - and they have the added bonus of making the presentation of my prints look professional and put- together. They're easy to seal, and can be unsealed multiple times without losing their ability to close. I highly recommend these!

Be very sure you have selected the colors/ pattern you will be using. Have found push molds are not very tolerant. I have read in numerous places that a thin coating of cornstarch for easy clay removal will help. This doesn't work for me(tried different molds). The result is film on piece that I need to then use thin paint brush to remove. Anxious for suggestion, as I find this very time consuming.
