Impressionist, modern, post War & contemporary art

contemporary art

One way of passing on a message or expression is through painting. A painting can tell a whole story of an event that occurred at a certain place in time with full detail. It is the case in impressionist, modern, post-war and contemporary art.

Contemporary art is an art that is created at the moment. On the other hand, post-war art is an art that was created at a certain period in America between 1945 and 1970. Modern and Impressionist art gives detail on movements defining Western Art in recent times. This kind of art covers sculptures, paintings, ceramics, and works on paper done by artists such as Camille Pissarro. Camile Pissaro has exemplary art on whom his works can be viewed on

Modern art

Art that was created between the 1860s and 1960s is what is considered modern art. Art was considered modern if it did not rely on the art academy's teachings. The first painter considered to have made a modern painting was Edouard Manet. It was considered modern as he did not mimic the real world but instead broke the traditional rules of painting. Modern masters paintings, therefore, are paintings done by artists who followed the footsteps of Edouard Manet.

Impressionist Art Gallery

Impressionist painting was done in the 19th century by a movement of painters inspired by Edouard Manet. This group of French Painters recorded everyday life events through their paintings with the help of colour and the effects of light. The paintings are preserved and such paintings can be found in the Impressionist Art Gallery.

Contemporary painting

Contemporary painting is an art that is formed at the moment. It is an art similar to that of performance art and conceptual art. While creating the contemporary painting, the artist gets their inspiration mostly from the audience. This, therefore, makes the process in which the artist arrived at the art more important than the art itself. Postmodern, feminist, and conceptual minimalist are also considered contemporary art.
