Expressionism was one of the many art movements taking place during the early part of the twentieth century. The major goal of Expressionism was to show how artwork (in terms of painting) could have the capacity to transcend expression. The key artists involved were Ernst Lugwig, Wassily Kandinsky, Max Beckman and Emil Nodle. While the German Expressionists did not necessarily provide any new information to modern art, they did revive a growing concern among the modern artists.
