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.

How does he know about it? From the ability to identify yourself with the work done today and from observing the ratification with everything that was done yesterday? From agreeing that his name had already begun its journey in the maze of transformations, it began to multiply and disappear and could now be completely lost, erased, forgotten among the endless series of incarnations? From wanting to be someone or something else, not playing the role of an artist and not practicing art, or accepting responsibility for becoming art, along with the assumption that being an artist very often means not being anyone? The artist observes from the side how he disappears from everywhere, where he could be, but he persistently leaves his signature on every piece of paper, fixing the day and hour when this action took place, another realization of his presence, another proof of the existence of another art.

Expressionism emerged as an acute, painful reaction to the deformities of civilization of the early 20th century, World War I and the revolutionary movements. The generation traumatized by the massacre of world war (in which such great masters as Augustus Macke and Franz Marc died) perceived reality extremely subjectively through the prism of such emotions as disappointment, anxiety, and fear. They contrasted the aesthetism and naturalism of the older generation with the idea of ​​a direct emotional impact on the public. For expressionists, subjectivity of the creative act is paramount. The principle of expression prevails over the image. Motives of pain and cry are very common.
