With two-dimensional, very colourful and expressionistic works, the bridge painters displaced the impressionism that had dominated until then since 1905. The forms were simplified, the colour increased in its intensity and the line became the main vehicle of expression. “Yellow Echinacea” is an exemplary work of this expressionist style of painting: the picture captivates with its clear formal language and its simple composition.
