The Ecstasy of Colour. Munch, Matisse and the Expressionists

On display until 13 January 2013, this exhibition at the Folkwang Museum in Essen trains the spotlight on the early 20th century. As well as the 'wild ones' of French art – Henri Matisse and André Derain – the focus for visitors young and old is on the works of Norwegian artist Edvard Munch and young German and Russian Expressionist painters such as Ernst Ludwig Kirchner and Wassily Kandinsky.
