Friday Art

In recent months I have discovered a few painters I really like from what is called the “Post Impressionism” era, and one of them is Camille Pissarro.

Paintings like this one, Chaponval Landscape, 1902

He was also well-known for his Impressionism-era paintings, like this one, Stagecoach to Louveciennes, 1870.

Although I am not a big fan of Impressionism as a style — not enough bold colors or contrast — I do like the textured look in this one. Note the difference in color saturation and contrast in these two paintings.

I discovered these new artists, believe it or not, on Twitter. Famous artists from the past have Twitter accounts! Who knew?! 

The site linked above is also very useful for such a quest.
