At a quick guess I'd agree it was Expressionist. Reminds me a bit of Kirchner. With more thought it might be classed as post-Expressionist or Magic Realist. The boundaries are a bit fuzzy.

Never believe anything until it has been officially denied - Sir Humphrey Appleby, 1984.

I know nothing of art, but I don't see it as expressionist as the details are too sharp.

I have no idea about modern western art, but I like the face in one of the flowers. Could it be referring to Heny VIII's Katheryn Howard, just with a more modern clothing on Henry? She was called the Rose without a thorn (though far from it)!

It's probably a pity that the most famous Expressionist painting is The Scream and its variants. It isn't very typical.

This is also by Edvard Munch:




And this is by Kirchner:
