HAVC 135B : German Art 1905-1945

How did concept (i.e. idea) and form (i.e. style) unify in early Expressionism?
The artists showed this concept with their use of color (they tended to go for bright colors), and they were less refined in their painting style. They would leave their brush strokes showing (unlike the classically trained artists from the academies) or they would take a more abstract approach to the subject matter they were painting, leaving the meaning more up to the viewer.
