The theme/movement that i chose was Impressionism because it was a creative way of capturing a moment in time through paintings by use of light and color .The artists would start painting out in the open, rather than in a studio. By doing this, they could capture the image as they originally seen it. All of these images within the gallery offer a realistic view of what would be seen, at a glimpse, from the human eye. All of these images connect because they capture the moment; whether it be working, socializing, or just beauty itself. By use of vivid colors and experimentation of light, impressionists created realistic images with a technique that was unique to its time period, but could also be seen as profound to some critics. The brush strokes seen within the image show that these images are original, and focus on capturing the moment itself, rather than the painting. I believe all these impressionist paintings helped develop modern art because the impressionist movement itself was criticized at first. But, it was later accepted for its unique style, which artists used and modified to create artworks in the future.
