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.

product performed as expected. Great price and fast shipment and delivery.
- Dan C. in Port St. Lucie Fl
Agree with all the others. I don't go anywhere without one of these in my pocket. So handy when you are opening boxes of stock. Fits into the "fob" pocket of my jeans. Incredibly sharp. Gave them to all my co-workers and they love them.
- deldol in Medford, OR
I wrote a review before seeing a video, which demonstrated how to open the luminaries so they could stand. Now I love them! I just wish the instructions had been clearer. You have to spread the bottom seam so the plastic piece inside can push the sides apart. I love that the candles light up when they touch the water, and turn off when removed from the water.
