57+ Expressionist Paintings by Famous Artists


Expressionist paintings are created by the artists/ painters who follow expressionism. Expressionism is a part of the modernist movement that originated in Germany in the early 20th century. It started with painting and poetry but has so far extended to literature, music and other forms of artistic expression. Expressionist paintings are set apart on the basis of the trait that is central to expressionism. This trait is that the respective painting is a subjective expression of the painter’s view of the world as against the traditional expression of objectivity. The painter instils in his/ her artwork the emotional and spiritual subjective vision of the world. The most influential artists whose work solidified the path for expressionist paintings include Vincent Van Gogh, James Ensor and Edvard Munch. One of Van Gogh’s most famous and earliest expressionist works includes the painting titled ‘Sunflower’.

Yellow Fins Expressionist Painting By Mike Savlen

The painting is the perfect example of what expressionism was according to Van Gogh- i.e. it is the use of colour both arbitrarily and forcibly to express oneself rather than just replicating what one first sees when eye meets the object. It was with expressionist paintings that the idea of art coming from within an artist began to spread and stick. It is often seen through the various expressionist paintings that the artists used exaggeratedly executed brushstrokes, swaying and forceful swirling of the brush to depict the subject they were painting. Few other most notable expressionist paintings include-‘The Scream” by Edvard Munch, ‘The Large Blue Horses’ by Franz Marc, Egon Schiele’s portrait of Eduard Kosmack, Karl Schmidt- Rottluff’s ‘Madchen aus Kowno’ amongst many more.
