Publisher Comments:

The transformation of reality: The most significant German contribution to 20th century European art
 
During the first two decades of the 20th century, many artists famously experimented with nonrepresentational expression. Taking cues from ideas hinted as by artists such as El Greco, Goya, Van Gogh, and Munch, Expressionists sought to transform reality rather than depict it in any sort of literal fashion. Egon Schiele, Max Beckmann, Paul Klee, and Wassily Kandinsky are among Expressionism’s most famous exponents.

Featured artists include:
Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Erich Heckel, Karl Schmidt-Rottluff, Max Pechstein, Otto Mueller, Emil Nolde, Wassily Kandinsky, Franz Marc, August Macke, Paul Klee, Alexej Jawlensky, Gabriele Münter, Marianne von Werefkin, Heinrich Campendonk, Lyonel Feininger, Arnold Schönberg, Oskar Kokoschka, Egon Schiele, Paula Modersohn-Becker, Christian Rohlfs, Ludwig Meidner, Lovis Corinth, Ernst Barlach, Wilhelm Lehmbruck, Max Beckmann, Otto Dix, and George Grosz
 
About the Series:
