Modern Masters

Not to let this post be too long I have chosen just a few of the first paintings I photographed. I took this information from the book Great Modern Masters to explain about the term.

From Cezanne to Matisse to Van Gogh, each of these masters of modern painting has had an immeasurable influence on modern art, through the movements of Impressionism, Cubism and Fauvism as well as through their own individual styles.

Study for “La Grande Jatte.” by Georges Seurat 1859 to 1891
In art we studied the finished painting and discussed what all was seen in it.
It says Seurat made 78 studies before finishing the final piece.
