The name of this blog is the Reincarnation of Monet. The idea is that each post will give you a new way of seeing an impressionist painting.
We’ll start with a painting by Claude Monet, then look at it in different lights, and see what else we can find. We’ll be using some knowledge from art history, but our goal won’t be to tell you what the original artist had in mind. It will be to get you to think about the painting in new ways, so that you can experience it more deeply yourself.
Browsing through this blog might feel like looking for treasure at a flea market. And like a flea market, if you know where to look, there’s a lot of interesting stuff here. Here are the Monet paintings we’ve looked at so far:
I’ve been an impressionist art admirer and admirer of Claude Monet since I was a child. I am also a writer, a blogger, and an amateur painter. Through my blog, I want to share my passion for impressionism art with everyone.
I am painting again. Many of the paintings are impressionism art. This blog is not a commercial art site and I do not sell these paintings. I started this blog to keep my family informed about my new hobby.
The works of the impressionists are by far my favorite pieces of art. The idea of a movement does not seem to be very clear here, as this group of artists is known for their rather radical approach in their art forms. Impressionism was a style practiced mostly by French painters between 1860 and 1910, which focused on the study of light, color and the effects they have on objects in nature.
About: The term “Impressionism” was initially used to describe the works of its founders, Claude Monet, Auguste Renoir, Edgar Degas and Camille Pissarro. These four painters had been working together since 1856 and were painting in a similar style. The Impressionists came to regard themselves as a separate movement after 1867, when they exhibited alongside the traditionalist artists at the first Salon des Refusés. All but two (Edgar Degas and Gustave Caillebotte) were rejected by the jury that year.
The influences of Impressionism can be found in works created by artists who were not officially part of the group, such as Mary Cassatt and Édouard Manet. All three artists lived and worked together for some time in an apartment at 54 rue d’Or
Painter Claude Monet once said, “Art is a lie that makes us realize the truth.” His statement is actually very profound, as it can be used to describe many different aspects of life.
Monet’s art can be described as Impressionism, a style that was first introduced in France during the mid-19th century and quickly spread to the rest of Europe. It is characterized by a visible brushstroke, vivid colors and large patches of pure color. One of the most famous Impressionist painters was Claude Monet, whose work included the paintings titled “Water Lilies” and “Rouen Cathedral.”
Impressionism stands apart from other painting styles because it does not attempt to accurately represent visible objects. Rather, it tries to portray objects in their environment and how they affect each other. By using large patches of color that merge together when viewed from a distance, Impressionist paintings give the impression of an image viewed through a window or on a fogged mirror.
Art is a beautiful, creative and inspiring visual medium. But it can sometimes be difficult to see. Often its complexity captures the human imagination and inspires in each of us an emotional response. Sometimes it is an aesthetic experience, or a spiritual one. Other times, it can be an experience that touches our core values, brings us to tears or makes us want to take action to support the creators. There are so many reasons why art can have such a profound impact on our lives.
The power of art was something I came close to experiencing first-hand when I met Claude Monet’s work in person for the first time this spring in Paris at the Musée de l’Orangerie . It is located on the north bank of the Seine facing a small park called Jardin de Tuileries which contains four sculptures by Auguste Rodin , including The Thinker . After visiting the Museum, I couldn’t get Monet out of my mind for several days. It was as if he had reached out and gently pulled me back into his world through the brushstrokes of his paintings.
After returning home from my travels, I began searching online for photographs of Monet’s paintings which I could then use as wallpaper on my computer and mobile phone screensavers
Impressionism is a style of painting that became popular in France from the 1860s onwards. The movement was inspired by Monet, Claude Monet, and it involved a technique of applying paint in small strokes and brush marks rather than thick layers of paint.
The impressionist movement tends to be split into two periods: the pre-1886 period, known as the “Impressionist Period”, and the post-1886 period known as the “Independance” or “Manet” period.
The first impressionist exhibition took place at Le Salon des Refusés in Paris in 1865; this exhibition led to public ridicule and hostility toward the artists, but it also gained them some fierce supporters who later became known as “Les Irreconciliables.”
The Impressionists’ early works were greeted with contempt by critics who found their new style ungainly and lacking grace. As time went on the Impressionists were more readily accepted by the art community, but their paintings were still considered controversial.
