Impressionist Artist World Geography 8 th Grade Mrs. Reed via Mrs. Barker
Impressionist Art Impressionist art is a style in which the artist captures the image of an object as someone would see it if they just caught a glimpse of it.
Impressionist They paint the pictures with a lot of color and most of their pictures are outdoor scenes. Their pictures are very bright and vibrant.
Focus of the Artists The artists of the movement worked mostly outdoors and strived to capture the variations of light at differing times throughout the day.
Impressionist Artists They emphasized sunlight, shadows, and direct and reflected light. In order to produce vibrant colors, they applied short brush strokes of contrasting colors to the canvas, rather than mixing hues on a palette.
The Artists The artists like to capture their images without detail but with bold colors. Some of the greatest impressionist artists were Edouard Manet, Camille Pissaro, Edgar Degas, Alfred Sisley, Claude Monet, Berthe Morisot and Pierre Auguste Renoir.
