I have searched for days...through impossible sites that were slapped together by amateurs and never did I find EVERYTHING I wanted and needed in one spot, priced so well, and easy to find. I deleted the rest of my art supply sites after one visit here. Thank you so much and I look forward to doing a lot of business with you in the future.

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.

Latest Product Reviews

I definately love these, as do my children.
- Nancy in LaPorte In
I liked this apron because it sturdy, well made and the pockets are deep. The price is right.
- Carol Mitchell in South Carolina
Not the world's greatest, but nice, especially given the price. More than adequate for practice pieces, and students. I pay more per tube for the professional quality paints I use now, than for this entire 18-piece collection, so if you need paints for practice, go for it! Not especially great for making custom colors- mixes tend to get muddy. Stays wet in tubes for years!
