Via Blog-Bud Lou… who is an accomplished artist in her own right (and art teacher!), and with whom I share a BIG love for the Impressionists…
Your result for What Your Taste in Art Says About You Test...
Balanced, Secure, and Realistic.
Impressionism is a movement in French painting, sometimes called optical realism because of its almost scientific interest in the actual visual experience and effect of light and movement on appearance of objects. Impressionist paintings are balanced, use colored shadows, use pure color, broken brushstrokes, thick paint, and scenes from everyday life or nature.
People that like Impressionist paintings may not alway be what is deemed socially acceptable. They tend to move on their own path without always worrying that it may be offensive to others. They value friendships but because they also value honesty tend to have a few really good friends. They do not, however, like people that are rude and do not appreciate the ideas of others. They are secure enough in themselves that they can listen to the ideas of other people without it affecting their own final decisions. The world for them is not black and white but more in shades of grey and muted colors. They like things to be aesthetically pleasing, not stark and sharp. There are many ways to view things, and the impresssionist personality views the world from many different aspects. They enjoy life and try to keep a realistic viewpoint of things, but are not very open to new experiences. If they are content in their live they will be more than likely pleased to keep things just the way they are.
I loved this quiz! And yeah… I’ve been accused more than once of being less than “socially acceptable.” As with all of these quiz thingies, I have minor issues with this one. All too often examples of one school I like (e.g., the Impressionists) were bundled with paintings from another favorite school (e.g., Ukiyo-e) … forcing me to choose among faves. But that’s just a quibble. Overall, the test is a fun thing to do… especially if you’ve spent a great deal of time in museums over the course of your life… which I have.
I’d be MOST interested in your results, Gentle Reader… If’n you wanna take this quiz. One note: free registration is required to play.
