Art History

The late nineteenth-century Impressionist movement focused on the changing modern world and the serenity of nature. Critic Louis Leroy gave the Impressionist movement its name after calling Claude Monet's (French, 18401926) Impression, Sunrise a sketch or "impression" and not a finished painting. Impressionist artists' loose brushwork gives an effect of spontaneity and effortlessness that masks their often carefully constructed compositions. Post-Impressionism, on the other hand, concentrates on themes of deeper symbolism. Producing works characterized by a borderline abstract aesthetic, Post-Impressionists used a simplified color palette and sought to express emotions rather than simply creating optical impressions.
