Aside from the style of painting radically changing, the subject matter too is taking on a whole new meaning. These artists were painting modern scenes and they were no longer romanticizing the past. Yet today, so much of the population idealizes these images because now they do romanticize the past! But let’s stop and think about hard it must have been to create beautiful, valid art on everyday scenes. Wherever you are right now, take a look at your surroundings. Have a camera? Take a snapshot. Post it here, and let’s try and figure out how they could qualify as a proper subject matter for a painting!
Unit 6: Impressionism
Romanticism came to an end in Europe as intellectual pursuits gained momentum. Instead of creating idealized images of perfection, artists strove to present images of the modern world, including paintings of every class and their conditions of life. Impressionism rose out of this trend to capture the realities of society, and took it one step further by literally painting what was before their eyes. Their work has an immediate, painterly freshness that was strongly criticized at the time. Post-Impressionism continues these modern ideas by calling out the evils of the modern world, and striving to formalize the Impressionist process into a validated art form.
