The Artist: Ludwig Meidner
Expressionism is a revolutionary art form developed in the early 20th century where artists wanted to release the deeper emotions which they felt lay beneath the surface of everyday life. Paul Wyatt was commissioned to produce 12 films for a major exhibition entitled Expressionism: The Total Artwork. This extraordinary collection of expressionist works are held at Leicester’s New Walk Museum and Art Gallery.
This film features an insight into the work of Ludwig Meidner and in particular Apocalyptic Vision part of a series of paintings he produced in his Berlin studio during the summer of 1912.
