  • The generation of French painters maturing around 1870 painted modern urban subjects, but form a perspective very different from that of Manet and the Realists- Painted the upper middle class at leisure in the countryside and in the city, and although several members of this group painted rural scenes, their point of view tended to be that of a city person
  • -Monet was a leading exponent of Impressionism--a view of the sun rising in the morning fog over the harbor at Le Havre-many of his works included shimmering expanses of water
  • -in lecture but not in the book
  • -in lecture but not in the book
  • -in lecture but not in the boon
  • -Impressionist-painted mostly images of the upper class at leisure-glamorized the working-class clientele of the dance hall by placing his artist friends and their models in their midst-”idealist image of a carefree time”
  • -was married to Manet’s brother-women Impressionist-she was confined to depictions of women’s lives
  • --focused her career on the domestic and social life of upper-middle-class women-shows the intimate contact between mother and child after a bath and just before the child falls asleep-

  • -was a contrived scene but not an actual event-many dancer’s poses are uncharacteristic of the actual ballet but are included to show how the life of a dancer is tiresome, involving tedious hours of work
  • -Unconventional composition that tilts the perspective
  • -all of these artists used Impressionism as a springboard for their individual expressions of modernity in art
  • -used colors in effect of their complementary colors-contained 11 colors-individual forms and colors are much more distinct close up and fade into the background- atmospheric perspective -depicted working families spending time together
  • -Beginning of modernism-presents the mountain rising above the the Arc Valley which is dotted with buildings and trees, and crossed at the far right be a railroad viaduct

  • -painted from a careful observation of the artist’s imagination-the picture’s energy might express Van Gogh’s euphoric hope of gaining in death the love that eluded him in life
  • -”art is an abstraction”-portrays a thickly outlined, androgynous nude figure lying prone on a bed, close to sleep. In the background the spirit of the dead watches over the figure.-is meant to envoke a certain mood
  • -Move from abstraction to symbolism-silent scream echoes through the painting-stuff of nightmares and horror movies
