Paul Klee. Paul Klee (German pronunciation: [paʊ̯l ˈkleː]; 18 December 1879 – 29 June 1940) was a painter born in Münchenbuchsee, Switzerland, and is considered to be a German-Swiss.

Paul Klee

[a] His highly individual style was influenced by movements in art that included expressionism, cubism, and surrealism. He was also a student of orientalism.[1] Klee was a natural draftsman who experimented with and eventually got deep into color theory, writing about it extensively; his lectures Writings on Form and Design Theory (Schriften zur Form und Gestaltungslehre), published in English as the Paul Klee Notebooks, are held to be as important for modern art as Leonardo da Vinci's A Treatise on Painting for the Renaissance.[2][3][4] He and his colleague, the Russian painter Wassily Kandinsky, both taught at the German Bauhaus school of art, design and architecture. Die Brücke. Fritz Bleyl poster for the first Die Brücke show in 1906 Die Brücke manifesto 1906 Die Brücke (The Bridge) was a group of German expressionist artists formed in Dresden in 1905, after which the Brücke Museum in Berlin was named.

Die Brücke

Founding members were Fritz Bleyl, Erich Heckel, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner and Karl Schmidt-Rottluff. Later members were Emil Nolde, Max Pechstein and Otto Mueller. The seminal group had a major impact on the evolution of modern art in the 20th century and the creation of expressionism.[1] Die Brücke is sometimes compared to the Fauves. Georg Baselitz. Georg Baselitz (born 23 January 1938) is a German painter who studied in the former East Germany, before moving to what was then the country of West Germany.

Baselitz's style is interpreted by the Northern American[clarification needed] as Neo-Expressionist, but from a European perspective, it is more seen as postmodern. Francis Bacon. Francis Bacon in his studio Francis Bacon (28 October 1909 – 28 April 1992) was an Irish-born British figurative painter known for his bold, graphic and emotionally raw imagery.[1] His painterly but abstracted figures typically appear isolated in glass or steel geometrical cages set against flat, nondescript backgrounds.

Francis Bacon

Bacon began painting during his early 20s and worked only sporadically until his mid-30s. Lucian Freud. Lucian Michael Freud, OM, CH (/ˈlʊ.siː.ən ˈfrɔɪd/; 8 December 1922 – 20 July 2011)[1] was a German-born British painter.

Lucian Freud

Known chiefly for his thickly impastoed portrait and figure paintings, he was widely considered the pre-eminent British artist of his time.[2] His works are noted for their psychological penetration, and for their often discomforting examination of the relationship between artist and model.[3] Early life and family[edit] Born in Berlin, Freud was the son of a German Jewish mother, Lucie (née Brasch), and an Austrian Jewish father, Ernst L. Freud, an architect.[4][5] He was a grandson of Sigmund Freud, and elder brother of the late broadcaster, writer and politician Clement Freud (thus uncle of Emma and Matthew Freud) and the younger brother of Stephan Gabriel Freud.

" Pitié pour la viande! Il n'y a pas de doute, la viande est l'objet le plus haut de la pitié de Bacon, son seul objet de pitié, sa pitié d'Anglo-Irlandais. Et sur ce point, c'est comme pour Soutine, avec son immense pitié de Juif. La viande n'est pas une chair morte, elle a gardé toutes les souffrances et pris sur soi toutes les couleurs de la chair vive.

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.[1][2] Expressionist artists sought to express meaning[3] or emotional experience rather than physical reality.[3][4] Origin of the term[edit]
