Impressionism was a 19th-century art movement that began as a loose association of Paris-based artists whose independent exhibitions brought them to prominence in the 1870s and 1880s. Post-Impressionists extended Impressionism while rejecting its limitations: they continued using vivid colours, thick application of paint, distinctive brushstrokes and real-life subject matter, but they were more inclined to emphasize geometric forms, to distort form for expressive effect, and to use unnatural or arbitrary colour.This video is part of the "Palette" project and pays homage to Impressionism and Post-Impressionism. Video by Mark Garvey, song "(l)Overture" by Bill Hooper. Please visit www.MarkGarvey.co.uk for more details.
