Art DictionaryDictionary of Art Terms
This is a style of art that is based on expressing the artists emotions. It is in direct opposition to the cerebral art of Geometric Abstraction. It is also not to be confused with Impressionism, which is also far different in its attempt to depict certain forms of lighting effects. Expressionism is not from a particular period, but started at the end of the nineteenth century with such artists as Vincent Van Gogh, and later with the Fauves, such as Henri Matisse. Most often the term is used as part of a movement's name such as the German Expressionist or the Abstract Expressionists. It is really any painting that is primarily based on the release of the artist's emotions.
Art DictionaryA Brush With Greatness Glossary

The artists expresses what they have within themselves instead of what can actually be seen with the eyes. A few examples of Expressionists are Die Brücke, Francisco de Goya, Vincent van Gogh and Paul Gauguin.
Art DictionaryFine Art Terminology
An art movement of the early 20th
century in which traditional adherence to realism and
proportion was replaced by the artist's emotional
connection to the subject. These paintings are often
abstract, the subject matter distorted in color and
form to emphasize and express the intense emotion
of the artist.
