Impressionism PowerPoint

  1. 1. IMPRESSIONISM<br />WHAT IS IT?<br />
  2. 2. What is Impressionism?<br /><br />Introduction<br />What is Impressionism?<br /><br />Impressionism started way back in the 19th century in Paris, France. The name of this movement comes from the title of Claude Monet’s work “Impression, Sunrise”<br />Characteristics<br />Techniques<br /> Claude Monet<br />Video<br />Notable Artists <br />Wall Wisher<br />What’s Coming Up?<br />Your Turn!<br />Monet - Impression<br />
  3. 3. Characteristics<br /><br />Introduction<br />What is Impressionism?<br /><br /><br />Impressionist paintings tend to have small, thin brush strokes with an emphasis on accuracy over precision. Light is also a significant factor and how it is captured is key to impressionist work.<br />Characteristics<br />Techniques<br /> Claude Monet<br />Video<br />Notable Artists <br />Wall Wisher<br />What’s Coming Up?<br />Your Turn!<br />Monet - Stacks of Wheat<br />
  4. 4. Techniques<br /><br />Introduction<br />What is Impressionism?<br /><br /><br />Short, thick strokes of paint are used to quickly capture the essence of the subject, rather than its details. The paint is often applied impasto.<br />Colours are applied side-by-side with as little mixing as possible, creating a vibrant surface. The optical mixing of colours occurs in the eye of the viewer.<br />Grays and dark tones are produced by mixing complementary colours. In pure Impressionism the use of black paint is avoided.<br />Wet paint is placed into wet paint without waiting for successive applications to dry, producing softer edges and an intermingling of colour.<br />The play of natural light is emphasized. Close attention is paid to the reflection of colours from object to object.<br />In paintings made en plein air (outdoors), shadows are boldly painted with the blue of the sky as it is reflected onto surfaces, giving a sense of freshness and openness that was not captured in painting previously. (Blue shadows on snow inspired the technique.)<br />Characteristics<br /><br />Techniques<br /> Claude Monet<br />Video<br />Notable Artists <br />Wall Wisher<br />What’s Coming Up?<br />Your Turn!<br />
  5. 5. Claude Monet<br /><br />Introduction<br />What is Impressionism?<br /><br /><br />Claude Monet is seen as the father of Impressionism. He was the most consistent and prolific practitioner of the movement's philosophy of expressing one's perceptions before nature, especially as applied to plein-air landscape painting.<br />Characteristics<br /><br />Techniques<br /><br /> Claude Monet<br />Video<br />Notable Artists <br />Wall Wisher<br />What’s Coming Up?<br />Your Turn!<br />
