I would highly recommend this for layperson wanting a reasonably comprehensive introduction to Expressionist art and its historical and cultural context. This book presents a fairly thorough sampling of the major artists and groups, and can be understood without much background in art theory.

The art reproductions are numerous and of high quality.
