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.

Latest Product Reviews

These work nicely, they're cheap but quite good for storing and organizing pencils, their intended purpose.
- Matthew Hornbostel in Houston, Texas
As a cartoonist, I've found only the 100 nib to be one that acts like a brush in that it gives me the thick and thin line that I desire, and a very thin line as well. It handles well and is very flexible.
- Jerry D. in Terre Haute, IN
Other than the few that kept breaking as I was sharpening them, I was impressed with the vibrant colors & how they went on so smoothly.
