It is a movement that emphasizes the emotions and feelings of the artist, rather than simply representing reality. Expressionist artists sought to express their subjective vision of the world, using bright colors and simplified forms. One of the most famous expressionist artists is Edvard Munch, known for his famous painting "The Scream" (1893). Munch used bright colors and simplified forms to express his emotions and deep feelings in his works. Oscar Kokoschka (1886-1980) and Egon Schiele (1890-1918) are also known expressionist artists for their work.

Kokoschka used bright colors and visible brushstrokes to express his emotions in his works, while Schiele used lines and simplified forms to create emotionally charged works. In summary, expressionism in painting is a movement that emphasizes the personal expression of the artist and his emotions, rather than simply representing reality.
