Expressionism expresses the emotional and sensual world of the artist. This is the main difference of this trend from the same classicism,
where attention is concentrated on the surrounding space, which is as realistically drawn by the artist as possible.
In the historical context, expressionism was strongly influenced by the First World War. The horrors and misfortunes that brought this event to humanity are reflected in the work of artists. They blamed logic, pragmatism, practicality for all their troubles, and in their work they preferred emotions, feelings, and the subjective vision of the surrounding space. Very common themes of expressionist artists were the themes of fear, pain, horror.
