I'm very pleased with the swiftness of the order, and especially the careful packing. Wrapping the tube of oil paint in lots of bubble wrap kept it fine shape. Thank you!

Styles & Periods
Post-Impressionism

The impact that French Impressionism had on the art world was profound, and it set the stage for several of the influential and innovative modern masters that followed. Beginning in the late nineteenth century, several artists began to push the limits of Impressionism. Many elements of Impressionism were still considered relevant, including the use of intense color and brush strokes that reflected the character and mood of the painter. The Post-Impressionists continued to use these techniques, but sought to imbue their works with more compelling subjects, as well as a renewed focus on form and structure. The familiar names Paul Cézanne, Vincent van Gogh, Paul Gauguin and Georges Seurat all belong in this group. In general, these artists left behind the naturalism of Impressionism in favor of the scientific study of color. By introducing these elements, the seeds of modernist movements Fauvism, Cubism and German Expressionism were planted. When the paintings of the Post-Impressionists were first shown, a sensation occurred; today these works continue to be essential in the dialogue of modern art.

I use these markers for children's illustrations, and they are wonderful. I do wish there were more color options for colors. I've found the light colors too few, especially when working with skin tones These pens last a very long time and work well with all sorts of papers. The tip options make this a great marker for precision coloring.

Masterpiece is absolutely fantastically prepared canvas! The surface is smoother than Fredricks Red Label, but not quite as smooth as their Blue label...right in between for a surface that can be used for detailed work effectively! The canvas support is incredible!They are very well made, and perfectly aligned, supported, and taut...just the way I like it! Big thumbs up for this brand of canvas!
