Jawlensky was predominately an Expressionist painter who preferred to focus and allow his works to be depictions of his emotions, or how he felt about the painting. He was known to produce portrait paintings as well as interpretations of his surroundings through the usage of very bold colors. Like many other Expressionists centered in Germany, he also chose to place lesser importance on the technical aspects of painting, and instead focus on emotive facets of painting.
