Impressionism was the first of the modernist art movements. The term impressionism is derived from Monet’s artwork Impression: Sunrise, which is a demonstration of the values of the movement. Impressionism began in France in the 1860’s and exemplified the rejection of traditional art making methods and began abstract art. The impressionists (Monet, Pissarro, Renoir, Degas) veered away from the realistic style paintings which society valued and developed a darker and sketchier style. Their paintings reflected every day scenes and landscapes, often painting on location and in plein-air (the open air).
RIWT Task One By Katie Ziegler Impressionism and Post-Impressionism Impressionism developed in the mid to late 19th century in France, and lasted until the early 20th century (Pioch, 2006).

It is however smooth and soft like Renoir when he paints his people but hers is no way near as detailed. ‘Red Poppy’ Oil on canvas, 1927 This painting gives a profound impact, mainly because we never look at something so insignificant in such great detail, as it is a large and vivid, persimmon-red shape which shows an extreme close-up of a poppy. I think the original of this piece is supposed to be smaller, but the viewer still sees the flower in a huge perspective because the angle and position from which the painting was created makes the viewer feel like they are very close to the painting anyway.
La Tour used a painting technique called, trompe l’oeil, French terminology for, “fool the eye.” La Tour obviously used this technique before William Harnett came along. This particular technique gives the painting a very unusual appearance where some of the objects look like they are glued onto the canvas. There are a lot of details and depth in this painting. The women’s hats with the feathers, the jewelry, the wine bottle, coins on the table, the cards behind the tricksters back just to name a few. La Tour carefully and artistically arranged the subjects in a way that the texture causes the viewer to develop an impulse to touch the piece.

The painting displayed humanism, realism, and complimented the artwork by flattering Venus in a beautiful necklace completed with stones or a heavy velvet hat. Also, accentuating her figure with her almond-shaped eyes. Lucas proposed the lighting in the frame of artwork to draw the eye to the painting instead of keeping away attraction of nudity.

AP European History January 15, 2014 Impressionism In the nineteenth century, a popular art movement called Impressionism began in France. After the Franco-Prussian War, most of the French cities began to rebuild their structures, making the people and artists appreciate the natural scenery of their country even more.
