Fauvism: comes from the french word fauves, meaning Wild Animals.
rejected traditional paintings and sculpture ideals and emphasized modern concepts, notably machines and motion.
Inspiried by the late impressionist works of Paul Gauguin and Von Gogh.
First public appearance in 1905.

Rejected impressionist palette of soft colors.

A term used to denote the use of distortion and exaggeration for emotional effect.
Intense color. Agitated brushstrokes, and disjointed space. Rather than a single style, it was a climate that affected not only the fine arts but also dance, cinema, literature and theatre.

An art style which attempts to depict not objective reality but rather subjective emotions aroused by the space and events.

The idea was to reproduce the impression suggested by the artist's view of the surrounding world, not by the world itself. Like the image it feels accurately constitutes the objects real meaning to him.

Earliest and most famous example of expressionism: Gogh's The Starry Night.
