What defines Post-Impressionism?
1) Name four famous post-impressionistic artists? Van Gogh, Cezanne, Seurat, and Gauguin 2) Give one definitive style with each of these artists? Linear motion, geometric shapes, dot placement, and color 3) Give four characteristics that define Van Gogh’s style of artwork in addition to linear motion? Impasto, gesso, vibrant colors, and complimentary colors 4) Give four characteristics that define Cezanne’s style of artwork in addition to geometric shapes? Proto-Cubist, Neo-Impressionism, graduating tones, and analogous colors 5) Give four characteristics that define Seurat’s style of artwork in addition to dot placement? Pointillism, iridescent, and contrast colors, and split complimentary colors 6) Give four characteristics that define Gauguin’s style of artwork in addition to color? Symbolism, Synthetism, brilliant colors, and primary colors
How to use line in art Lines defining motion Impasto – process of applying thick layers of paint for texture Gesso – a way to help add texture in painting Vibrant colors Complimentary Colors – blue/orange
How to use geometric shapes Neo-Impressionism – science based interpretation of line and color Proto-Cubist – a style moving towards Cubism Modeling paste – mix with acrylics for depth and texture Similar colors Analogous Colors – green/blue- green/blue/blue-violet
Color value – placing value of shading, form, and composition through color Pointillism – using dot placement for composition Iridescent – creating a metallic look when mixing with acrylic paints Contrast in colors Split Complimentary Colors blue/yellow-orange/red-orange
Color in emotion – using color for expression rather than realism Symbolism – symbols used for intense personal, private, obscure, and ambiguous references Synthetism – focusing on two-dimensional flat patterns specific to the major idea or feeling of the subject Gloss Medium – adding transparency to paint applications Primary colors – red, yellow, blue
