Art History Spotlight: ImpressionismGreetings and salutations, deviants! Today I bring to you the first of what is hopefully a monthly series: Art History.Art History Spotlight: Impressionism by oilsoaked
The Art History Series will be exploring various movements in art, the technique used therein, major artists behind it, and its influence on dA!
This first spotlight is on Impressionism, chosen really because it's my favorite.
as defined by Merriam-Webster
1 : a theory or practice in painting especially among French painters of about 1870 of depicting the natural appearances of objects by means of dabs or strokes of primary unmixed colors in order to simulate actual reflected light
So, to break it down less stiffly, impressionism is really a portrayal of light and its relationship with color. It is a movement based heavily on observation of how light interacts with life.
