The purpose of Expressionism is to show emotions that the artist feels in hopes that the viewer will be stirred and feel them as well. The artist is not concerned with reality as it appears but with its inner nature and with the emotions aroused by the subject. To achieve these ends, the subject is frequently caricatured, exaggerated, distorted, or otherwise altered in order to stress the emotional experience in its most intense and concentrated form.
Edvard Munch places his feelings and emotions deep inside in his paintings. He is a very talented artist, although, his life was more painful than you may think.
