Fauvism And German Expressionism

a: German expressionism ~
b: Fauvism without the happy colors

What: One of the points of this article is that color can be manipulated to manipulate emotions. Color goes right to the heart. There is a reason traffic signals are red, yellow and green. Color goes to the heart in ways that STOP, CAUTION and GO do not. So these expressive artists used color to evoke and manipulated the emotions of the viewer. You see the same pattern in TV shows and commercials as of late. There is a lot of super saturated coloring to evoke in the viewer the desired emotional state .
