Expressionism is a movement that arose in the late twentieth century against positivism and naturalism, especially Impressionism, which was caused by the political instability and economic collapse of the period. Expressionism, represented mainly by artists such as Edward Munch, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, James Ensor, was intended to reveal the emotions that existed in the inner world of the artist. The current, which stands on the artist's unique interpretation rather than the actual appearance of nature, has been heavily mirrored in colors and forms and, although at first times, it has been widely adopted and disseminated over time. Chaim Soutine, one of the expressionist artists; nature, object and figure issues in the modern style of his paintings have come to the fore, intense paint layers and strong expression of his dark inner world in the cold places that reveal figures, landscapes and meat carcasses and his own anger and melancholy reflecting works produced. The paintings of the famous artist, who lived between 1893 and 1943, with depressing narratives in their symbolic expressions, often leave tense emotional impressions in the audience.
