I am placing this on the FAQ so that people can just find immediately any they would like to read when they want to read them. Also it means I dont have to keep trying to find every thread to update the list of 'What Is' threads.
Thanks for understanding the need for this post.
Please feel free to add below the name of something you would like me to add to it and I will have a look to see what I can do.
So far so good, Beth and thanks for organising these subjects, wish I could add one, shall give it some thought. Vivian Of course you could touch on all the 'isms and have an endless list: how about Fauve? A strange 'ism for sure .
Hi Beth. Yes please. Can you do one on (cap C) Colourists, (as in Scottish, Peploe et al) cos I've noticed (not here) that there is often confusion surrounding the proper use of that one in the UK. Cheers.
if you need explanation and videos just let me know.. i have also invited a couple of artists from other sites i have met and have joined the emotionist movement to join FAA.. they are really good.. moom from poland and anjana from, a place i can not pronounce..lol..but let me know
A piece on art history might clarify whether one can or cannot be a member of an artistic movement that has been defunct for (say) more than a hundred years, which had a specific agenda pertinent to its members or to the age, ie. can one actually be a Fauve or can one only paint in a Fauve-like manner?.
Maria, even the Fauvists had variation in their particular manners of painting and could easily be recognized one from another. I personally see no reason one can't adopt the "program" with enough research to further the studies of a particular way of seeing and painting...but take the case of Impressionism. Creating a painting that has the appearance of Impressionism while sitting in one's comfortable, dial-a-temperature, cozy studio with fake sunlight bulbs looking at a photograph (and then of some place one has never been - even worse) is not being an "Impressionist" by any stretch of the imagination. It is an carnival act creating bogus goods that only look like Impressionism to the unsophisticated eye.
Impressionism is done outside in real life looking at real things in real time in real weather looking deeply at the color games as sunlight interacts with various substances.
