This is a video on Expressionism and its growth from Fauvism to its modern manifestations. The video demonstrates its emotional and structural aspects while also exploring the major milestones of the Expressionist movement.
Expressionism Video (VHS/DVD) shows the beginning of the movement: first from its roots as a product of Fauvism, and then to its modern installations. It discusses the way Expressionism places an emphasis on the emotional aspects of color while displaying less concern than the traditional Fauves style with formal compositions of color. The movement of Contemporary Neo-Expressionism takes this even further.
