Graphic Discontent: German Expressionism on Paper

When: Sun., Jan. 14 2018

At the beginning of the 20th century, many young artists in central Europe rejected traditional training in state-sponsored art academies and formed groups with other artists who shared their desire to do something different. Many German groups experimented with form and technique, and the expressionist artists living in Vienna and Berlin used a "condensed, abstracted visual language" in their artwork. They're represented in Graphic Discontent: German Expressionism on Paper, which opens today at the Cleveland Museum of Art, with more than 50 prints and drawings dating from 1905 to around 1922. It runs through May 13. (Niesel)
