    A strange but irresistible energy started to crackle across the city, as artists who had struggled for years in poverty and obscurity suddenly found self-confidence and success. These were often unimpressive aesthetically but had the capacity to arouse extreme emotions in the viewer. Together, they formed a movement that became known, in time, as Abstract Expressionism. However, the term Expressionism did not firmly establish itself until Weinstein, The End of Expressionism The terror of his art, however, is only alleviated by its moral strength.

    The classic phase of the Expressionist movement lasted from approximately to and spread throughout Europe. Surely, by now, something — anything — would have emerged. The original Expressionist movement's ideas about spirituality, primitivism, and the value of abstract art would also be hugely influential on an array of unrelated movements, including Abstract Expressionism. Was Pollock, wittingly or not, a propagandist for the US government?

    In part a reaction against Impressionism and academic art, Expressionism was inspired most heavily by the Symbolist currents in lateth-century art. Abstract expressionism presented a broad range of stylistic diversity within its largely, though not exclusively, nonrepresentational framework. Schiele left Vienna in but remained in Austria, where he worked and exhibited until his death in the worldwide influenza epidemic of Weinstein, The End of Expressionism Initially Kokoschka worked in a Viennese Art Nouveau style, but starting in he instinctively worked as an Expressionist, passionately seeking to expose an inner sensibility of the sitter in his early portraits.

We find luminous streaks from Wassily Kandinsky, and the sickly hues of Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, the futurist facets of Franz Marc, and a partial Impressionist throwback in the gaudy dabs of Emil Nolde.

As can be seen from such labels as Abstract Expressionism and Neo-Expressionismthe spontaneous, instinctive, and highly emotional qualities of Expressionism have been shared by several subsequent art movements in the 20th century. Frascina, ed.

Art was now meant to come forth from within the artist, rather than from a depiction of the external visual world, and the standard for assessing the quality of a work of art became the character of the artist's feelings rather than an analysis of the composition.
