Alexej von Jawlensky (1864-1941) was a German-Russian painter.

In 1889, the former officer in the Tsarist army begins with his artistic training. In 1896, he moved to Munich to visit a private art school. In Munich he met Wassily Kandinsky. In Murnau, Jawlensky worked the first time with Kandinsky and Gabriele Munter. The idea of establishing "Munich new artists Association" was formed at this time. Also, Jawlensky of the movement of the Blue Rider belonged to. With Kandinsky, Klee and Feininger, later, he founded the group “The Blue Four".

The artist is shown in 1914 at the beginning of the First World War as Russian citizen from Germany and settled first in the Switzerland and point out in Wiesbaden. At that time, his abstract heads appeared. In 1941, Jawlensky dies of a serious illness.

Influenced by the Fauvism, Alexej von Jawlensky painted with bright colours, violent brushwork and dark outlines. His works are among the most wanted works of classical modernity and can be found in major museums around the world.

Designation for the painting and sculpture detached from the representational portrayal, which spread from around 1910 in ever new style variations across the whole western and parts of the eastern world. Russian painter Wassily Kandinsky, born in 1866, is considered to be the founder of abstract art. Among other important artists of abstract art are K.S. Malewitsch, Piet Mondrian, and others.


Artistic movement that replaced the Impressionism in the early 20th century.

Expressionism is the German form of the art revolution in painting, graphics and sculpture, which found its precursor in the works of Paul Cézanne, Vincent van Gogh and Paul Gauguin in the late 19th century. The Expressionists tried to advance to the basic elements of painting. With vibrant, unbroken colors in large areas and with the emphasis on line and the resulting targeted suggestive expressiveness they fought against the artistic taste established by bourgeoisie.

The most important representatives of Expressionism were the founders of "Die Brücke" (The Bridge): Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Erich Heckel, Karl Schmidt-Rottluff, Max Pechstein, Otto Mueller and Franz Marc, August Macke, among others.

Masters of Viennese Expressionism are Egon Schiele and Oskar Kokoschka.

The Fauvism is the French form of Expressionism.
