Junge wilde - neue wilde


A German word for wild youth, Junge Wilde refers to young artists in Germany in the late 1970s and early 1980s who rebelled against academic authority and did expressive paintings, using emotion-driven colors and brushstrokes. Jorg Immendorff (1945-2007)of Dusseldorf was one of the leaders. Sources: Wikipedia; ARTnews, Summer 2007, p. 100
