Van Gogh and Expressionism

Van Gogh and Expressionism

The paintings of Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890) became the epitome of modern, international art during the period after his death up to the outbreak of World War I. In no other country was Van Gogh so admired as he was in Germany: Ernst Ludwig Kirchner and other artists of Die Brücke were fascinated by Van Gogh's brushwork and strongly contrasting colors as well as by the dynamic aura of his glowing palette. Vasily Kandinsky and the artists of Der Blaue Reiter esteemed Van Gogh for rejecting visible reality and penetrating the essence of nature. Austrian artists Egon Schiele and Oskar Kokoschka, on the other hand, were especially impressed by the soulful expression of Van Gogh's art and his insightful psychological portraits.


This catalogue examines the enormous influence of Van Gogh on German and Austrian Expressionism. It presents numerous masterpieces by Van Gogh and the Expressionists, including extremely powerful works by the painters of Die Brücke, Der Blaue Reiter, and the Viennese avant-garde.
