this is portrait painting

During this unit we will learn about Post-Impressionism and the key artists of the movement! For our project we will be creating a self-portrait painting in the style of one of the five key artists! Some painting styles we will learn about will include impasto and pointillism. Students will learn about facial proportions and the teacher will guide them through the step by step process of drawing a face.

Post-Impressionist Artists

Paul Gauguin From an early age, Paul Gauguin was influenced by South American art. Although he was inspired by impressionism during the early part of his artistic career, he later returned to a more primitive type of art and subject matter when he moved to Tahiti. Much of the culture inspired him in his painting, and his work took on more symbolic meaning.

Paul Cézanne Paul Cézanne was one of the leading artists of the post-impressionist movement. He is said to be one of the most influential artists of modern art. He was born in France in 1839 to wealthy parents and, although it displeased his father, Cézanne turned away from his law studies to pursue a career in art. Much of Paul Cézanne’s early work consists of landscapes, a theme seen among impressionists. But by contrast, his colors at times were darker, and he simplified objects into shapes that could be broken down.

Henri De Toulouse-Lautrec Although he was an accomplished painter (above), Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec was another post-impressionist artist and was known for his lithograph posters (below.) His early paintings were influenced by the impressionist, especially by his friend Edgar Degas, whose painting style he emulated. He experimented with color, sometimes using unnatural colors to express the mood and atmosphere, and his brushstrokes were loose and sketchy. Toulouse-Lautrec did not live a long life, but he created many works of art in a style that is distinct and highly recognizable.

Vincent van Gogh The most famous of the post-impressionists is Vincent van Gogh. Though he is renowned as an artist today, he was not well respected in his time and sold only one painting during his short life. He began to experiment with bright colors and loose, swirling brushstrokes. He would often paint very thickly in a style known as impasto. This is a painting technique in which the paint is applied to the canvas very thickly, sometimes with a palette knife. It gives the painting actual texture when dry.

Georges Seurat Seurat's experimental style became known as pointillism. Seurat used tiny dots of color as his brushstrokes, painted carefully next to each other in a painstakingly deliberate way so the viewer would see the colors as blended together. During his life, Seurat made a tasting impact on both his contemporaries and artists later to come. His painting A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte (above left) is one of his most famous works and is thought to be iconic of the nineteenth century.
