Buy impressionism artworks

The Impressionist style of art has been around for more than 150 years, but even today it hasn’t become outdated or bored with the artists or the public. Perhaps that’s because Impressionism really is a breath of fresh air. The masters of Impressionism went into the open air, discovered a real pictorialism, started to depict the world in its vivid, vivid and moving beauty.

Features and trends of impressionist art

Impressionism emerged in France in the 1860s as a shift away from Academism. However, long before artists rejected by the Académie des Beaux-Arts founded the Salon des Outcasts, long before Édouard Manet painted Breakfast on the Grass (which caused a terrible scandal!), European art had begun searching for a new picturesqueness. In the 1860s and 1870s there was a real explosion – paintings filled with air, light and shades.
Fans of “serious” art laughed at the first impressionists, but today only very rich people can buy impressionism, and its price is steadily high. Post-Impressionism emerged as an evolution of Impressionism, and artists began to pay more attention to the transmission of form. In the 1880s, pointillism, in which an image was created with many tiny strokes of local colour, was born in France, and tonalism, which enthusiastically explored the airy medium, was born in the United States.

Another direction of impressionism at the turn of the century was Pictorialism, which combined pictorial techniques with photography. In the 1950s abstract impressionism arose in the United States, related to lyrical abstraction. One could say that impressionism is the observer’s joy at the beauty of the world around him. This style, unlike realism, never engaged in criticism of the social order. Its task is to admire nature and convey its optical effects.

Famous impressionist artists

Works by Édouard Manet, Claude Monet, Camille Pissarro, Alfred Sisley, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Georges Seurat and other impressionist artists are in the most prestigious collections. People from all over the world travel to the Orsay and Orangerie museums in Paris to view these masterpieces in their own country. The style is so fascinating that every country has its own followers of Impressionism and its variants. To mention just a few.

The greatest German impressionists were Max Liebermann, Lovis Corinth and Max Slevogt. Alois Kalvoda and Antonín Slavíček were famous in the Czech Republic, Władysław Podkowiński in Poland, Joaquín Sorolla in Spain, William Chase, Edmund Tarbell and Frank Benson in the USA, Valentin Serov, Isaac Levitan, Konstantin Korovin and Alexander Murashko in the Russian Empire.

What are impressionist artworks today?

Today thousands of artists around the world work in the Impressionist style. This style is democratic, not bound by strict rules, based above all on a fine feeling for the colour and texture possibilities of painting. All techniques are equally good, impressionist paintings in oil paints and acrylics are equally beautiful, and impressionism in watercolor (as, for example, by contemporary French artist Laurent Parcelier) offers enormous freedom. The style is not limited to painting techniques, however, but also includes graphic art and photography. Contemporary impressionist artists also work successfully with digital technologies (like the Bulgarian Tsvyatko Kinchev). Nowadays its very easy to find a modern impressionist art for sale online with your phone.

Impressionist artworks in Eastern Europe

In Eastern Europe in the second half of the twentieth century this style developed with some difficulties, especially in the USSR. But unlike abstraction, which was banned in the Soviet Union, it still existed – the paintings of many artists are close to Impressionism in their characteristics in conveying the light and airy environment. One cannot but think of the artist Yuri Yegorov from Odessa (Ukraine), who created original and frankly impressionist seascapes. Today Impressionism is widely represented in this region and there are several contemporary artists to name but a few: Bato Dugarzhapov (Russia), Magdalena Spasowicz and Maria Dziopak (Poland), Ivan Rusev (Bulgaria), Vladislav Shereshevsky (Ukraine), Zurab Sharvadze (Georgia), Lilit Vardanyan (Armenia)…

How to choose impressionist artwork on G.ART Gallery platform?

Impressionism in interiors is like a window to a beautiful world filled with sunshine. Large paintings, impressionist oil on canvas or acrylics are always a winner. But even a small work will be a joy to paint for years to come. There are several things to consider for the perfect purchase. Decide in advance where the artwork will be displayed. A large work can be the focal point of an interior, while a smaller one often needs an ensemble of works that are close in style or colour.

The lighting and hanging system can also be considered in advance. Contemporary art is often displayed unframed, but of course a spectacular frame is always a plus for a painting.
