Expressionism In Art & Film - Hardcover


  • As a revolutionary cultural movement, Expressionism endeavoured to join art and life, diminishing separation between the arts. The Gesamtkunstwerk (the total artwork) became the ideal for artists. Exaggerated figures, strong contrast and distorted perspective pervaded all mediums, reflecting the tremendous angst of the early 20th century’s social upheavals
  • This volume traces the crossing of genre boundaries, outlining mutual influences between painting, graphics and film
  • This volume highlights these elements of Expressionism, drawing parallels between art and film. Artists Erich Heckel, Emil Nolde, Paula Mondersohn-Becker, Alexander Kanoldt, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner and Otto Mueller figure here, as well as directors Robert Wiene, F.W. Murnau and Ernst Lubitsch
