"Expressionist Impulses: German and Central European Art, 1890-1990"
Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, "Dodo in the Studio," 1910.

In the early 20th century, the term Expressionism was used to describe the emerging modern art movements that favored simplified forms, warped details and unnatural coloring. Throughout the century, the style spread from Germany and Central Europe to surrounding countries, transforming as it was filtered through different cultures. Through a collection of 80 works, the Smart Museum's new exhibition explores the beginning of Expressionism in Germany and tracks its permutations through the ensuing decades.
