Abstract:
"1 don't care so much whether my color is exactly the same, as long as it looks beautiful on my canvas, as beautJful as it does in nature." --Van Gogh [7] Until the advent of impressionism, a painting's canvas was supposed to be a featureless window inca another world, a world that appears just like nature.The art salons of the time ridiculed impressionism, both because they deemed impressionism's themes (people in parks, a pair of shoes in the corner) trivial, and because the painting style did not reflect reality.This new style differed from photorealistic painting in that the canvas wa~ no longer invisible. Instead, the texture of the layers of paint on the canvas was an inherent part of the art_ Artists did not faithfully replicate the colors of nature, they exaggerated them Rgure I: Monet's Four Trees. See page 94 ~ar color/moire. (sometimes, as in Fauvism, to an extreme degree).
