Very impressive, Impressionism that is.
The 1800’s to early 1900’s were a time of incredible discovery and experimentation in the art world. The ‘Impressionists’ were mainly in France, centred around Paris, and together ushered Art through the Victorian age, the Industrial Revolution and their Neoclassical and Romantic eras.
Delacroix Turner Corot Courbet
Monet Manet Renoir Pissarro
Cassatt Morisot Degas Van Gogh
Gauguin Cezanne Seurat
Are you familiar with all of these names? Who is your favourite?
I couldn’t pick a favourite; it would be impossible. I cannot possibly compare Degas natural beauty of a ballet dancer preparing to perform to the fantastical swirls and colours of Van Gogh’s Starry Night.
