“His creations embody warmth and optimism, and bring the richness of Armenia to life through color and bold brushstrokes.”
-- Maria Kevorkian
Amongst an array of 19th century French painters and styles of art, impressionism is one of my favorites. Although I studied psychology, my gravitation to art led me to enroll in a few elective courses. I learned to interpret pieces and understand an artist’s interests (and sometimes philosophy) through the subjects captured in their work. Their voices and emotions intertwine with their brushstrokes they once made. Breaking away from traditional and conventional subjects—be it royalty, mythology, or ideal beauty— impressionists concentrated on scenes of the ordinary middle-class. The combination of color theory and light emphasis are what made impressionism so innovative.
