Expressionism used to be a modernist flow, at the beginning in poetry and portray, originating in Germany at the start of the 20 th century. Its average trait is to give the area completely from a subjective viewpoint, distorting it noticeably for emotional impact that allows you to evoke moods or principles. Expressionist artists sought to precise that means or emotional adventure instead of actual truth.

The surface would be relatively matt. If I moved closer I might be able to see the detail of the brushstrokes out of which the image is made. And depending on where the painting was hung on the wall, I would be more powerfully aware of those eyes of Olympia, looking out at me, level with my own. Now read what the American modernist art critic Clement Greenberg had to say about Manet’s art in the canonical essay ‘Modernist painting’ that he wrote in 1960, and then revised in 1965, a hundred years after Olympia was exhibited at the Salon in Paris: Manet’s paintings became the first Modernist ones by virtue of the frankness with which they declared the surfaces on which they were painted.
Modernist artists attempted to transcend parochial and local conditions and create a formal ‘language’ valid beyond time and place, and ‘the school of Paris’ or the ‘international modern movement’ signified a commitment to a culture more capacious and vibrant than anything the word ‘national’ could contain. The critic Harold Rosenberg (1906–78) stated this theme explicitly. 18 Wood examines this theme in the introduction to chapter 1. ‘No-place’ then shifted continent. Perhaps for the only time in its history, after the Second World War modernism was positioned at the heart of world power – when a host of exiles from European fascism and war relocated in New York.
But this impulse had a wide appeal, beyond the circles of abstract artists. It is important to understand that the art of this time does not follow a single track. Nevertheless, artists who were identified as modernist shared a belief that the old techniques and skills were increasingly inadequate, even redundant, in the face of new conditions, whether those concepts were thought to be social, spatial or aesthetic. Even in the few western metropolitan cities where modern art developed, it was invisible to most people and the spread was definitely uneven.
