Claude Monet’s Woman with a Parasol: Madame Monet and Her Son and William Butler Yeats’s “The Wild Swans at Coole” both characterize important aspects of the Impressionist Age. The word “impressionism” is mostly associated with the artistic movement. The first time this term was used with reference to art was when one writer was speaking of a painting by Claude Monet, called Impression: Sunrise (1872, Musee Marmottan, Paris). The term was first officially used in 1877 (“Impressionism”). The artists of this movement were characterized as impressionists because of their simplified works (“Monet, Claude Oscar”).
Impressionist painting grew out of artists’ discontent with the strict standards of the French Academy of Fine Arts. These artists wanted the freedom to paint what they see and felt while painting. Claude Monet and Edgar Degas were just two of the many artists who transitioned into impressionism. Although Monet and Degas painting styles were markedly different, they both showed artistic freedom in their work. The impressionist movement in the arts brought fresh ideas, subjects, and techniques into painting.
Not only is this technique executed in this painting, but on a vast majority of Monet’s work. However, Monet’s Water Lilies series could serve as a counterclaim to such statement, as they fail so focus on a single subject, instead blurring everything on the canvas. Edgar Degas exceeds beyond Bardo’s definition of Impressionism. Though his seamless use of perspective and focus on subjects appear a good fit to the Impressionist movement, Degas referred to himself as a Realist or Independent artist. Indeed, he did share a preference for depicting the middle class – emphasizing figures, lights, and shadows – rejecting the Impressionist color theory.
He uses unity, balance, emphasis and subordination, and rhythm to design each piece. He has created a unified piece in, Autumn Effect at Argenteuil the use of vertical lines, the height of the trees and the stream. He also adds a little variety by painting the town in the horizon. In Garden at Sainte-Adresse, he uses the same technique, but only opposite. He has unity by painting the patio, sea, and sky horizontally, but adds some variety by painting the flag poles and flowers vertically and by painting one boat, in the forefront and the fence being higher on one side.
Whereas with Pollock, is actually one with nature, he also works outdoors but rather he does not actually paint nature. He is the nature, rather the nature of painting, of being an artist. There landscapes are different, from the movie that we saw in class Pollock does not really paint much landscape. His drip techniques are his landscape, his ability to use the brush as an application tool. Then there is the fact that Van Gogh actually made physical landscapes on his canvas.
In Paris this launched a movement called impressionism. Impressionist techniques individualities each artist using short or broken brush strokes that barely take form, unblended colors, and shadows or highlights of light. Its founding members include Edgar Degas, Vincent Van Gogh, and Auguste Renoir, among many other artists. Their work is acknowledged today which embodied its rejection of a new style of ideas that illustrate modern life. Edgar Degas was a French artist famous for his work in painting human figure in their own movement.
Postimpressionism Postimpressionism was a movement in late-19th-century French painting that emphasized the artist's personal response to a subject. Postimpressionism takes its name from an art movement that immediately preceded it: Impressionism. But whereas impressionist painters concentrated on the depiction of a subject's immediate appearance, postimpressionists focused on emotional or spiritual meanings that the subject might convey. Although impressionist artists interpreted what they saw, their approach nevertheless remained rooted in observation of the natural world. Postimpressionists conveyed their personal responses to the world around them through the use of strong, unnatural colors and exaggeration or slight distortion of forms.

Impressionism is an art movement during the 19th century. During the late 19th century, Impressionism was transitioned into the Post-Impressionism by the French artist, Paul Cézanne. He is known as one of the contributors in transitioning to the Post-Impressionism movement. The Post-Impressionist era caused certain criteria’s to be violated but still held the techniques from the Impressionist era. Paul Cézanne developed many techniques that became significant within the movement and ultimately earned him the success as an artist.
Some of the artists that were in this group included Cezanne, Pissarro, Renoir, Degas, Monet, and Manet (Shafa 2007.) This group called themselves the “Societe Anonyme des Artistes, Peintres, Sculpteurs, ... ... middle of paper ... ...ndscape and leisure activities of Paris and its environs as well as the Normandy coast” (Heilbrunn Timeline of Art History 2000.) It was because of Monet’s painting Impression Sunrise and the guy who critiqued it that Impressionism got its name. Due to Monet’s profound style, he carved the path of modernism into the twentieth century (Heilbrunn Timeline of Art History 2000.) Works Cited Frank, Patrick.
