Finding A Contemporary Impressionist Artist That Will Make An Impression

By Susan Morris

For many types of art, especially in paintings, the goal of the artist is to be as realistic as possible so that the viewer will be amazed at how real it looks, and might even forget that he or she is only looking at a two-dimensional image painted on a canvas. This aim of realism is not what the contemporary impressionist artist strives for. Instead, these painters focus on depicting the scene the way that their eyes see it and their minds understand it.

Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Claude Monet, Edgar Degas, and Edouard Manet are four well-known names when it comes to impressionism. They were some of the founders of the style near the end of the 19th century in none other than Paris, France. These artists can be considered the foundation that any modern painter in this style has built upon.

While some paintings are extremely realistic, that sometimes does not make them look the most natural. When looking at any kind of a scene, be it urban or rural, the eyes and the mind work together to send signals and break down a picture that has a mindboggling number of features to it. The way that impressionism recreates this is by emphasizing the features of light and atmospheric change that are often naturally emphasized to the human eye.

It used to be true that only very rich people could afford to shop for artwork. Now anyone has the opportunity to look over a broad selection of paintings quite easily. By researching a trusted artist and curator, it's easy to shop for art online.

Some artists tend to focus on rural landscapes such as countrysides, while others are more partial to painting urban city scenes. This can have a lot to do with the particular painter's background including both his or her interests or where she or he grew up. If commissioning a new work of art, it is a good idea to learn about the artist's background to know if this is the right person for the job.

Working on location serves a big advantage for anyone painting in the style of impressionism. This is because of the nature of the style itself, being focused on the painter's impression itself of the scene. While there is plenty of work that can be done from the quiet of a studio, in order to capture all of the light and wind movement, sometimes painting from a picture alone is not enough.

Almost everyone has probably had the experience of looking at a painting and not being sure what is happening in it, not because it is abstract but because it is so loosely painted. By using brushstrokes that are vague, the viewer can interpret the image more like the way the brain naturally does. This can give the viewer a closer connection to the work.

As long as an artist or art dealer is a trusted source, the most important thing for the seller is that he or she likes the paintings that are produced. Beyond this, there are plenty of credentials that can be looked at. Many artists are involved in groups, and some hold leadership roles.
