ArtHisExam Apr30th Info

There is no movement simply called "Expressionism", Fauves Freed color from its traditional use. Did not use "Local Color", Matisse - color serves expressive purpose. Matisse used color based on subjective observation and feeling (Inf; Moreau, Van Gogh) [Without Emotion], You can tie Matisse to?, Matisse wrote "What I dream of, is an art of balance, of purity and serenity devoid of troubling or disturbing subject matter... Like a comforting influence, a mental balm - - Something like a good armchair in which one rests from physical fatigue", The Bridge = Faith in the art of the future, utopian idealism, a "Bridge" between art and society at large., "An example of this today is our sympathy, our spiritual relationship, with the Primitives. Like ourselves, these artists sought to express in their work only internal truths, renouncing in consequence of external form", Klee is hard to categorize as he is an expressionist and a Cubist as well as a Surrealist., "Art does not reproduce the Visible; rather it makes visible" "I want to reach the heart, I write words on the foreheads and round the lips. But my faces are truer than life", World War 1 In Europe, World War I USA Involvement, Those who fought in the war became known as the "Lost Generation", Marx - Communist Manifesto Capital I, Freud's Interpretation of Dreams
