Summary
ART & DESIGN STYLES: IMPRESSIONISM & POST-IMPRESSIONISM. AUSTRALIAN. Conder, Streeton and Roberts were leaders of the Heidelberg School of painters, which hit its stride in the late 1880s - a time of a growing national self-consciousness. With a heightened sense of what it meant to be 'Australian' came a desire to capture the Australian landscape, in particular the unique light, in fully modern ways. The landmark 9 by 5 Impression Exhibition of 1889 introduced Melbourne society to 'Impressionism' through around 180 oil sketches, many painted on cigar box tops of around 9x5 inches. These owed more to London's avant-garde than to French Impressionism, and in particular to Whistler, whose works Roberts had seen in London in 1884. Russell spent his working life in Europe, particularly France, in the company of Van Gogh, Monet and Rodin. While his talents as a colourist made a deep impression on the young Matisse, his innovative art was only rediscovered in the later twentieth century
