Glossary Terms
The following are glossary terms with which you need to become familiar and to utilize within
your work this week. You do not need to utilize them all; however, you need to utilize at least
three of these terms per assignment response. Please note that some terms are carried over from
previous weeks as they apply. Still, you should review all terms each week.
Art Nouveau
o

Color
o

The French fascination with all things Japanese. Japonisme emerged in the second half
of the 19th century.
Modernism
o

A late-19th-century art movement that sought to capture a fleeting moment, thereby
conveying the illusiveness and impermanence of images and conditions.
Japonisme
o

A system of painting devised by the 19th-century French painter Georges Seurat. The
artist separates color into its component parts and then applies the component colors
to the canvas in tiny dots (points). The image becomes comprehensible only from a
distance, when the viewer’s eyes optically blend the pigment dots. Sometimes referred
to as divisionism.
Impressionism
o

Those pairs of colors, such as red and green that together embrace the entire spectrum.
The complement of one of the three primary colors is a mixture of the other two.
Divisionism
o

The value or tonality of a color is the degree of its lightness or darkness. The intensity or
saturation of a color is its purity, its brightness or dullness. See also primary, secondary,
and complementary colors.
Complementary colors
o

French, “new art.” A late-19th- and early-20th-century art movement whose proponents
tried to synthesize all the arts in an effort to create art based on natural forms that
could be mass produced by technologies of the industrial age. The movement had other
names in other countries: Jugendstil in Austria and Germany, Modernism in Spain, and
Floreale in Italy.
A movement in Western art that developed in the second half of the 19th century and
sought to capture the images and sensibilities of the age. Modernist art goes beyond
simply dealing with the present and involves the artist’s critical examination of the
premises of art itself.
Optical mixture
o

Plein air
o

The phenomenon that juxtaposed colors affect the eye’s reception of each, as when a
painter places dark green next to light green, making the former appear even darker and
the latter even lighter. See also successive contrasts.
Successive contrasts
o

Red, yellow, and blue the colors from which all other colors may be derived.
Simultaneous contrasts
o

The term used to describe the stylistically heterogeneous work of the group of late19th-century painters in France, including van Gogh, Gauguin, Seurat, and Cézanne, who
more systematically examined the properties and expressive qualities of line, pattern,
form, and color than the Impressionists did.
Primary colors
o

A system of painting devised by the 19th-century French painter Georges Seurat. The
artist separates color into its component parts and then applies the component colors
to the canvas in tiny dots (points). The image becomes comprehensible only from a
distance, when the viewer’s eyes optically blend the pigment dots. Sometimes referred
to as divisionism.
Post-Impressionism
o

An approach to painting much popular among the Impressionists, in which an artist
sketches outdoors to achieve a quick impression of light, air, and color. The artist then
takes the sketches to the studio for reworking into more finished works of art.
Pointillism
o

The visual effect of juxtaposed complementary colors.
The phenomenon of colored afterimages. When a person looks intently at a color
(green, for example) and then shifts to a white area, the fatigued eye momentarily
perceives the complementary color (red). See also simultaneous contrasts.
Symbolism
o
A late-19th-century movement based on the idea that the artist was not an imitator of
nature but a creator who transformed the facts of nature into a symbol of the inner
experience of that fact.

Value
o
The value or tonality of a color is the degree of its lightness or darkness. The intensity or
saturation of a color is its purity, its brightness or dullness. See also primary, secondary,
and complementary colors.
