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.

Latest Product Reviews

Excellent mid-range synthetic brush - I use with water-mixable oils. They don't last forever, but while they do, they are a very dependable brush.

Mixing White--I do not recommend it, as the colors don't blend well. Titanium White is still my favorite for mixing. It's true that the colors don't change with the Mixing White, but I find it impossible to use. Titanium White blends so beautifully. I haven't used the other colors of this brand, but I don't care for the Mixing White.
