This week at ABC Wednesday the letter fo the week is E.
E is for Expressionism :
As Wikipedia states:
"Expressionism was a modernist movement, initially in poetry and painting, originating in Germany at the beginning of the 20th century. Its typical trait is to present the world solely from a subjective perspective, distorting it radically for emotional effect in order to evoke moods or ideas. Expressionist artists sought to express meaning or emotional experience rather than physical reality."
The Scream by Edvard Munch inspired many Expressionists.
Here is an interesting article on expressionism.
One of my favourite paintings is "Starry Night" by Vincent Van Gogh
Here's an ATC I created in this style"
Flowers ( modeled after Dana Barbieri)
