Impressionism and Post Impressionism


Manet is considered the leader of the Impressionist movement although he never exhibited with them. they often met in Cafes and talked long hours about art and changing the way was viewed and where art was made. Thus we have the coming of Monet and the Plien Aire movement, painting out doors and capturing light as it happened, capturing life as it happened, even though much of it was posed in one way or another.

the Impressionist were a group of roughly 12 to 16 members at anyone time. But the main assembly were Manet, Renoir, Degas, Pissarro, Monet, Sisley, Morisot, Cassatt, Cezanne, early on, and Gauguin, although he left midway through their twenty year run and Cailibotte. Artists like Van Gogh and Suerat, Gauguin, and Ceazzne were considered Post Impressionist.
These were artists that took the heart of Impressionism, light and color and ran with it. Cezzane's career took off later than the Impressionist which is why he is considered a Post Impressionist. He also Became know as the Father of Modern Art because of the way he Changed the way paintings were read.

Manet, notice his use of Black. this was a big difference from the other impressionist although he fostered using everyday people doing everyday activities in his work.

Cezzane, he had a hard career. He was hard to get along with, he never really felt he could draw, his paintings were rejected from every Salon show and when he exhibited with the Impressionists his reviews were awful, He painted monsters etc... but he vision kept him alive and his final works changed the course of art history.
