Their work signified the beginning of this new age of art (Mataev). The Impressionist Movement grew because these painters wanted a different style, a new technique, and paintings with more unique subjects. The popular paintings of the time were all approved by the Academie des Beaux Arts. The standard type of paintings that were most commonly approved included a scale of tones for forming shapes and blacks and browns for making shadows. These classical paintings were realistic, usually of scenes indoors.
However, Monet varied his work much more than Degas did. The evolution of Monet’s artistic style was extreme. Although both artists are of the Impressionist Movement, Degas and Monet started on very contrary bases in their approach to their production of painting and such. However, Monet influenced Degas into adapting his art to fit it into the Impressionist stereotype. Degas’ influence over Monet was minimal to non-existent putting aside his decision to add other colours to his palette.
His first teachers were academically trained and relatively conservative, Matisse’s own early style was a conventional form of naturalism, and he made many copies after the old masters. He also studied more contemporary art, especially that of the impressionists, and he began to experiment, earning a reputation as a rebellious member of his studio classes. Matisse’s true artistic liberation, in terms of the use of color to render forms and organize spatial planes, came about first through the influence of Gauguin, Cezanne and van Gogh, whose work he studied closely. Then, Matisse encountered the pointillist painting of Edmond Cross and Signac. By 1905 he had produced some of the boldest color images ever created.
Picasso had many artistic influences in his life, including Cézanne, Toulouse-Lautrec, and the well-known School of Fine Arts in Paris. Picasso contributed to artistic individuality when he started painting pictures in just one basic colour or one certain colour grouping. He achieved this when he did the paintings of the blue period and rose period and other artists later followed Picasso's example. Picasso contributed to artistic creativity by exploring and creating new art forms during his career such as Cubism-which was not limited to painting. This new style of cubism eventually led to the modern abstract art that is visible to us in the artwork of the modern day world.
Within this painting, one can see the movement of his work beginning with Impressionism to Post-Impressionism, and finally with the use of his vivid pigments he impelled the birth of Fauvism. Cezanne developed a style unlike any other. From the way he used color, to the strokes of his paintbrush, and finally to the setup of each individual object within the canvas, he created exceptional works of art setting him apart from all the rest. As a result he became one of the most influential painters of the 19th century. His influence helped in the creation of a color palette for the Fauves, including Henri Matisse, and ultimately paving the way as an enormous inspiration for Pablo Picasso.
Seurat was a very technical painter and had developed a style of painting using lots of coloured dots. As a result of this interest Matisse met and became friends with Henri Edmond Cross and Paul Signac who were both followers of Seurat. [IMAGE] Conversation- 1909 Cross and Signac were experimenting with small strokes (often dots or "points") of pure pigment to create the strongest visual vibration of intense colour. Matisse adopted their technique and modified it repeatedly, using broader strokes.
Renoir was actually the first Impressionist to slightly detach from the Impressionism direction. Renoir and his peers developed new techniques that defined the movement; their art was immediate, and it portrayed movement with great compositions and vivid colours. The public welcomed this original vision although art critics did not. Comparing the two paintings we can see how different Pierre-Auguste Renoir was from a typical Impressionist artist such as Claude Monet. Even though both artists supported Impressionism, Claude Monet focused more on the nature part and on the effect of light and shadow rather than the... ... middle of paper ... ...the two paintings come from different historic art periods.
We are able to both ends of the space due to the mirror that he has chosen to include in the painting. This technique was very interesting at the time because it stimulated more of the viewer’s sense of space. The mirror evoked a feeling of being in the scene of the painting and witnessing it for yourself. "In its own way it was as new and revolutionary as Donatello's or Masaccio's work in Italy- Ernst Gombrich Van Eyck was a great oil painter and brought his paintings to life using a layering technique. Van Eyck would layer thin translucent layers of paint over and over again to build his objects.

The techniques made these paintings easy to compare, but these paintings differentiated in what they stood for in their own time. The Romantic period was a product of heroes, particularly in war and history, making Turner's piece particularly important, because it recorded an important moment in history. The Impressionist movement was representing artists' perception of what they felt in a given moment of a painting. Though these works are similar in technique, the periods they each came from hold dissimilar ideals.
M.C. Escher occupies a unique spot among the most popular artists of the past century. While his contemporaries focused on breaking from traditional art and its emphasis on realism and beauty, Escher found his muse in symmetry and infinity. His attachment to geometric forms made him one of modernism’s most recognizable artists and his work remains as relevant as ever. Escher’s early works are an odd mix of cubism and traditional woodcut.
