CAFE IN BERLIN
Impressions of Berlincafe
Visit a beautiful café in Berlin that can be hardly recognized on the canvas. This feature is common for Impressionist piece of art. The painters used the approach to nature that was prompted by Japanese paintings on canvas – instantaneous image of the same object.
Claude Monet, for instance, created a series of haystacks, poplars, facade of the cathedral. Monet even had to pay to prevent cutting of those trees as he wanted to complete theseries. He could achieve and transfer the necessaryfeeling, working on a specially equippedboat. The painting of café in Berlin also has a fragmentary character. It seems that the artwork was fallen apart as a glass piece of art and then the pieces were connected again.
Power of natural impressions
The striving of Claude Monetto achievethe power of natural impressions made Impressionistuse pure colors without mixing paints.At the same time,the impression of half-tonescould be obtained with close position of the strokesof purecomplementary colors. Looking at this canvas ata distance,you can see that mixing effectis achieved. Even high-intensity colors acquired different hue. “Café in Berlin” is a good example of typical impressionist art. Look at it at a distance to make your perception work. Afremov does not mix the colors and makes your vision perceive the strokes the way he wants. Such work has even bigger effect. This fine art painting looks like a mosaic with great diversity so it will decorate your house perfectly.
Impressionism opened the door for other movements
Self-expressive possibilities of the stroke were discovered thanks to Impressionism therefore this movement has bigger potential than any other does. It can transmit the emotional state ideally. Also, other movementsappeared thanks to them. Impressionism opened the door for such movements and techniques as:
This is a movement that shows the environment from subjective perspective.
Pointilism is a technique of painting with dots. It helps to transfer huge shimmering space.
In fact,announcingone of the programs, the Impressionists openedconceptual art–modern art,where the mainprinciplewasthe vision, the idea ofthe highest value. Post-impressionists(Cezanne, Gauguin, Van Gogh, Degas, Toulouse-Lautrec) fullyimplemented these principles.
