Expressionist painters are intriguing to me. Part genius, part idiocy, their work may just be the most hotly contested of the ‘fine art’ genres.

An expressionist painting can connect with a person, as if calling out directly to their soul. Or, it might just look like an absolute waste of time, paint & energy. This is a genre where beauty really is in the eye of the beholder. Here is a few of the highlights (for me personally) in this post from Art News Blog

“I love most types of painting, from super-realism through to minimalism, but a good expressive work with paint slapped on and dripping off the canvas will always make me smile the widest.”
