Modern day Country Style
The artists connected with the Impressionist movement chose to depict modern (which means modern), every day life more than mythological, religious, or heroic topic matter. Monet’s use of abstraction evokes what the artist sensed or knowledgeable whilst painting the scene, which was a hugely uncommon approach for a painter to adopt at the time. As a outcome of photography’s precision, artists were obliged to find new modes of expression, which led to new paradigms in art. Similarly, Henri Matisse played with these genre styles in his Le bonheur de vivre” (1905-06).
The dawn of Conceptualism in the late 1960s marks the turning point when modern day art gave way to modern art. This general pattern of rejection and later influence has been repeated by hundreds of artists in the modern day era. The Academy bristled at the depiction of dirty farm workers about an open grave, as only classical myths or historical scenes have been fitting subject matter for such a big painting.
