The Impressionist surface perceptions in paint( Visual )

8 editions published between 1992 and 2001 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dr. Paul Smith reviews influential theories of Impressionism. Clement Greenberg's Modernist criticism argued that Impressionism was a critical stage in the movement toward flatness and abstraction. In contrast T.J. Clark saw flatness in Impressionism as carrying meaning about the nature of modern life and as signifying modernity itself. Paul Smith rejects both explanations as over-simplified. Flatness, the use of individual brush strokes, was a way of rendering 'sensations'. Pissarro and Monet used scientific color theories to achieve greater impact and immediacy in their work. Cezanne's work also showed that the world depicted depended on the surface depicting it. His work testifies to a struggle to hold colors and surface in balance. Degas' depiction of realistic social and sexual life depends on the artificial or factitious technique of representing it. These artists wanted to convey the sensations provoked by nature, not just a notion of 'flatness'
Meaning in abstract art( Visual )

7 editions published between 1997 and 2009 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The development of abstract art has been one of the most significant developments of the modern art movement. Yet, even after a century of abstraction, many people still find it difficult to make sense of works of art that don't depict recognisable objects. In this program we investigate different types of abstract art and discuss how meanings have been attached to these works and the problems this has created."--container
