    expressionists

    I'm looking for any info on expressionist artists that moved to the US (especially New York) because of WWII.

    thanks in advance.

    Ha! Good one!

    Look up "Die Brücke" or the Fauves. I think Max Beckman made it to the US before his death, as I recall. Also look up Emile Nolde or Ernst Kirchner, although I don't know if they came to the US. I think Kirchner died before WW2, not sure.

    As a side note, many german filmmakers who used an expressionist style escaped to Hollywood. Lang and Murnau amoung others.
