(81.3 x 60 cm) MET MUSEUM 8

9 FAUVISM “An early twentieth century style of painting developed in France. The artists, led by Matisse, used brilliant and explosive color to express the inner quality of their subjects rather than how they appeared in nature. They were called Fauves, or “Wild Beasts” because critics thought they used colors in a violent uncontrolled way.” Henri Matisse. (French, 1869-1954). Interior with a Young Girl (Girl Reading). Paris 1905-06. Oil on canvas, 28 5/8 x 23 1/2" 9

13 IMPRESSIONISM “Centered in France, 1860's to 1880's The hallmark of the style is the attempt to capture the subjective impression of light in a scene. Impressionism is a light, spontaneous manner of painting which began in France as a reaction against the restrictions and conventions of the dominant Academic art. Its naturalistic and down-to-earth treatment of its subject matter, most commonly landscapes, has its roots in the French Realism of Camille Corot and others. The movement's name was derived from Monet's early work, Impression: Sunrise, which was singled out for criticism by Louis Leroy upon its exhibition.” Academic artRealismCamille Corot Claude Monet's Impression Sunrise (18-7/8x 24-3/4 inches) is an oil on canvas housed at the Musee Marmottan in Paris.Paris 13

16 OPTICAL ART “Optical Art is a mathematically- themed form of Abstract art, which uses repetition of simple forms and colors to create vibrating effects, moiré patterns, foreground- background confusion, an exaggerated sense of depth, and other visual effects. In a sense, all painting is based on tricks of visual perception: manipulating rules of perspective to give the illusion of three- dimensional space, mixing colors to create the impression of light and shadow, and so on. With Optical Art, the rules that the viewer's eye uses to try to make sense of a visual image are themselves the "subject" of the artwork.” Victor Vasarely 1967-1969 Painting tempera on hardboard 59.1 x 59.2cm board TATE, LONDON 16
