modernism and impressionism? : LUSENET : Public Art : One Thread

OK, i have a report due soon on modernism and impressionism. i was just hoping that someone could send me some info on either of them or both! i would really apreciate it!!!

also, if anyone knows anything about the artist, Ferjo, i would also like learning about his art. i saw some of his art in a gallery in fort lauderdale, florida and i am now a huge fan of his work! thanks again!

my impression of modernism is that it is passe. more current is modern impressionism which blends seamlessly into post modernism. of course this is an ad hoc response that may be post dated by the time you read this. naturally this exploration depends on current and not retrograde definitions of time. hopes this clarifies the situation

Yes, but obviously it has to be seen in the context of neo classism which can never be totally ignored!

I think that asking for information on modernism/postmodernism is (a) too vague and (b) too huge a subject for anyone to give you a half decent answer. There must be hundreds if not thousands of books that deal with these terms in an artistic or non-artistic context, from simple to complex. I would recommend you start there rather than relying on a netsurfer to give a resume! Good luck.......... Jeremy

Work on Post-impressionism and Divisionism. As a matter of fat, most of the contemporary artists are interested to colourful images of late 19th and very early of 20th century. The effect of that movement was huge; it changed our aspects and concepts to world and art.

The idea is in reach colours and strong forms. It is a distance fro the Classical art and rebellion type of ideas and artists.

Good luck with rest of you essay.
