DEW1 Impressionism

Impressionism is a 19th-century art movement that originated with a group of Paris-based artists whose independent exhibitions brought them to prominence during the 1870s and 1880s. Some of these artists include Claude Monet, Vincent Van Gogh, and Edgar Degas.

Water Lilies is one of Monet's more famous paintings because of his perfection in the reflection and mixture of vibrant colors. Monet is known to use quick brushstrokes with a light hand, and that is definitely reflected in this painting.
Monet was known for his numerous paintings of hay bails. This was because of his interest in how the light changed the perspective of a painting,so he would paint hay bails at almost every hour of the day just comparing the different refractions of light they caused.
This is arguably the most famous painting of the late 1800's. Van Gogh was autistic and hypergraphic, so you could say that the world looked different through his eyes. He is known for his heavy brush strokes and use of blending to give the allusion of movement, espesially in this painting
This is a painting of Van Goghs bedroom at Arles. This is where he attended a mental institution, and also in his later years when he started to worsen in Autism. You can see how things are not very realistic, but this was how he viewed it from his perspective.
In this painting, you can clearly see the anxiety and distress on the young girls face as she is waiting. This gives a sense of emotion and curiosity to the viewer, making you ask yourself what she may be waiting for. This painting was a cover for a book called "the Waiting" which consisted of 110 pages.
Mary Cassatt was an American woman and artist, who was a friend of Degas. She did not become widely recognized until after her death, but Degas admired her for her artistic creativity. He also paints her as a young girl in a blue armchair, because they were indeed childhood friends.
