Painterly Artwork: What It Is & Where To Make ItHere at Pinot’s Palette, we love ALL types of artwork, but today we’re talking about the upcoming paintings in our library that take on a “Painterly" style; These are some of the most popular paintings on our calendar (as they’re generally perfect for first-timers), filled with color, texture, and beauty.
Join us for some of the upcoming ‘Painterly’ Paintings on our calendar!!!
'Painterliness' is a concept, based on the German term "malerisch" (painterly), a word popularized by Swiss art historian, Heinrich Wölfflin (1864–1945), to help focus, enrich, and standardize the terms being used by art the historians of his time, to characterize works of art.
The term, "Painterly" is used to describe a painting, done in a style that celebrates the medium that it was created in; Whether it's oil paint, acrylic paint, pastels, watercolor, etc., 'Painterly' artwork doesn't try to hide the texture and movement of the materials, which gives it a cleaner and more polished look, and preferred by many artists.
It refers to the application of paint in a 'loose' or less than controlled manner, resulting in the appearance of visible brushstrokes within the finished painting.
The Impressionists, Fauvists and the Abstract Expressionists tended strongly to be painterly movements, the most common of all of these is ‘Impressionism’…
Just take a look at the works of Monet, Renoir, Manet, Degas, Cézanne, and other famous Impressionists, and you’ll get the perfect idea of what a painterly stye of art looks like! The quick and excited brushstrokes, the movement and personality that they hold, and the intense effort that the artists put into the piece can all be seen in these types of art. We find it absolutely intriguing as just looking at it will give you a great idea of the passion and creativity that the artist had as they created the masterpiece; Seeing the work, come to life, with just the pattern, color, and texture, made with specific materials by the artist, gives us insight to the personal thoughts and feelings of the artists and how and why they may have made such a piece.
Many famous artists, from both past and present, have been big fans of a the rich and textured draw of this painterly style; Notably, artists such as Vincent van Gogh, Claude Monet, Edvard Munch, Rembrandt, and Pierre Auguste Renoir… just to name a few.
