Summary The Expressionist movement of the early twentieth century is renowned for its dramatic and often anguished images and its use of intense colours, as seen in the paintings of such men as Munch, Nolde and Kirchner. But it has largely been forgotten that Expressionism was also the creation of women artists. They not only participated in the major exhibitions but also contributed to the formation of the movement's concepts. In a novel approach to the subject, Shulamith Behr redresses the balance and presents the colourful and vital work of outstanding women Expressionists
