All in all impressionism to me seems like an escape into an alternate reality that focuses on fun and transitional of the moment. What do their styles say about your chosen artists’ appreciation of the human figures? The styles are very different to each other. One has more of the realistic of the picture and the other has more of the blur. Given the effect of light source and The chosen style would come from the heart of the person drawing and what they are good at and like.
The common colour in Margaret’s hat and top act almost as guide lines and our focus is drawn to the space in between. The point that the model is of a Margaret and not of him shows that Quilty doesn’t think that just painting himself isn’t his idea of a self-portrait because it isn’t expressing himself. So he painted a portrait of Margaret Olley whom is someone he admires and has probably influenced him in some way otherwise, why would he paint her specifically? When he had asked Margaret to model for him she declined saying she didn’t like her face and bewildered by her answer he persevered saying that wasn’t true and continued to ask her. Eventually Margaret accepted the request, I think that because of the reason she gave when she declined the first time inspired Quilty to prove her wrong, to show her that she is beautiful and is an important person to
Instead, they placed more emphasis on the “structure, content, and formal order” ("Impressionism & post-impressionism,"). They liked to use unnatural colors and use geometric shapes, unlike the Impressionist’s use of soft lines and natural colors. Also, instead of painting outdoors to capture the moment, Post-Impressionist painted in a studio, and their paintings were based on the emotion and concept of the artist (Emelda, 2011). Like the Impressionists, however, they believed the originality of the painting was important. Like many artists of the 1880’s, the Post-Impressionist wanted to portray “emotion and intellect as well as the visual imagery” ("Post impressionist,").
Cubists wanted to create pictures that went beyond geometry or perspective. The idea of 'relativity' the notion of movement on a flat surface was introduced. Artist fused both their observations and memories into the one image. But in order to do this the Cubists examined the way that we see. Artists were free from the use of perspective and accuracy.
This style was originally controversial and opposing artists thought of impressionists as not skilled with incomplete works. However, the pursuance of being in the exact moment, light was skillfully placed to give radiance from the sun and reflections were realistic enough to give you the time of day the scenery took place. This can explain why it was more effective for artists to capture their subjects in the great outdoors. The incompleteness was rather helpful in achieving an instant vision and was done by using primary colors without blending. In order for this style to be clarified artists used short brush strokes, dotting and smearing techniques.

Emerson’s definition of God and meaning is clearly different than that of the conservative Unitarian Church from which he split (Francis 4). Following ideas from Emerson’s work, Thoreau put them into practice. He saw nature as not just an awe-inspiring force but also a way of life. Thoreau saw nature as pure because it isn’t susceptible to commercialization and industrialization. It is both a relief and an educator.
What makes this so different and interesting to the eye is not only the style in which it was painted, but what was being painted. . With everything going on in the painting, the impression is that of silence and control. This painting may be viewed as simple, but creating it was far from simple. When Seurat made a decision to travel to La Grande Jantte, he found his inspiration.
In other words, expression supersedes representation, and nature is not to be used for confessional purposes, instead its quintessence is to be distilled through the power of the artist’s imagination. In this sense, painting has become more dependent on the artist’s memory rather than his immediate observation of nature, for it is not the physical object before the artist’s eyes that matters but the mental image that strikes the artist’s eye of mind, leaving a genuine impression on his living experience. As Émile Bernard put it, anything superfluous in a scene veils that scene with a reality which claims our visual attention, rather than our soul. Paul Gauguin infuses his emotion into his painting and endows each line and form, as materialistic forms, with a
