Different styles of the Impressionist

Impressionism is the 19th century art movement originated with a group of Paris-based artists whose independent exhibitions during the 1870s and 1880s. Impressionism is characterized by relatively small, thin, yet visible brush strokes, it often accentuates the effects on human perception and experience in unusual visual angles.

The impressionism style is derived from the title of Claude Monet (“Sunrise”, impression, 1872).

Together with Monet, Pierre Auguste Renoir is also one of the central figures of impressionism. He is commonly known as Auguste Renoir (25 February 1841 – 3 December 1919). Different from Monet, Renoir prefer to depict the daily life and observes the light, color, movement, atmosphere delicately.

Renoir was well known by his depictions of women as well as nudes and dance paintings. His most famous paintings including Impressionist masterpieces Luncheon of the Boating Party and Dance At The Moulin De La Galette and so on. He was spoken highly by Herbert in The Meaning of Artas "Renoir is the final representative of a tradition which runs directly from Rubens to Watteau."

The impressionism is reinforced by the more and more new generations. Olga is one of them who uses the quick, rough brushstrokes, which make her painting seems to be alive. Her impressionism artworks express the nostalgic themes, exploring the relationship between sensuality, materiality and morality.

Olga allows us to access a universe that she has almost lived in, and places where she could have lived. She gives us glimpse of world while obscuring her traces.
