Art 13

We have talked about some artist like Claude Monet and Mary Cassatt who were considered Impressionist Artist. Another group of artist were considered Post-Impressionism Artist. These were a group of French painters who pictured appearances by strokes of unmixed colors to give the impression of reflected light. Post-Impressionist art is characterized by bright and sharp outlined edges.

Paul Cezanne was an artist who was considered a Post-Impressionist artist. We talked about him a few months ago when were learning about nutrition and talking about fruits and vegetables. He was the man who liked to paint still life paintings of fruit, and some of you chose to make a still life painting of fruit, like he did. Let's look at some other pictures of  paintings that were made by Post-Impressionist artist and learn some of their names.

Look at post card set together and highlight some of the painting details, pointing out the reflected light in them.
