Tutor description

In 1874, fifty-five artists held the first independent group show of Impressionist art. Most of them including Cézanne, Pissarro, Renoir, Degas, Monet, Manet, and his sister-in-law Berthe Morisot (“a bunch of lunatics and a woman,” muttered one observer) had been rejected by the Salon, the annual French state-sponsored exhibition that offered the only real opportunity for artists to display and sell their work.

About MaterialismAbout Impressionism Radicalism of Impressionism: Trees are Not Violet; The Sky is Not Butter!In 1874, fifty-five artists held the first independent group show of Impressionist art. Most of them including Czanne, Pissarro, Renoir, Degas, Monet, Manet, and his sister-in-law Berthe Morisot (a bunch of lunatics and a woman, muttered one observer) had been rejected by the Salon, the annual French state-sponsored exhibition that offered the only real opportunity for artists to display and sell their work. Never mind, they told each other. At the Salon, paintings were stacked three or four high, and crowded too closely together on the walls. At their independent exhibition, mounted in what was formerly a photographers studio, the artists could hang their works at eye level with space between them. Although the artists didnt call themselves Impressionists at first, this occasion would be the first of eight such Impressionist exhibits over the next twelve years. An outraged critic, Louis Leroy, coined the label Impressionist. He looked at Monets Impression Sunrise, the artists sensory response to a harbor at dawn, painted with sketchy brushstrokes. Impression! the journalist snorted. Wallpaper in its embryonic state is more finished! Within a year, the name Impressionism was an accepted term in the art world. If the name was accepted, the art itself was not. Try to make Monsieur Pissarro understand that
