Impressionism

Impressionism (from French impression – impression) is a trend in European painting that originated in France in the mid-19th century. Impressionists avoided all the details in the drawing and tried to catch the general impression of what the eye sees at a particular moment. They achieved this effect with the help of color and texture.

Color field painting

Color field painting (from the English color field) is an abstract painting style that arose in New York City in the 1940-1950s. She was inspired by European modernism and was closely associated with abstract expressionism, while many of her early supporters were among the pioneers of abstract expressionism. The color field painting is characterized primarily by large fields of a flat, monolithic color, smeared or stained on the canvas, creating a continuous surface area and a flat plan of the picture. The movement pays less attention to gestures, strokes and action in favor of a general conformity of form and process.

During the late 1950s and 1960s, color-field artists appeared in the UK, Canada, Washington, DC, and the US West Coast using stripes, targets, simple geometric shapes, and hints of landscape imagery and nature. Continue reading
