Expressionism: The Total Artwork

Leicester’s art gallery holds an impressive collection of German expressionist art. 

This art movement was active before the First World War and reached its peak in 1920s Berlin. 

Many of the artists, such as Ernest Neuschul, were radicals and formed the artists’ November Group—named after the German Revolution of November 1919. 

It was cut short by the rise of Nazism, but has had a continuing impact on art and film.
