In the 19 century they broke that and turned to master paintings or natural and urban landscapes for inspiration. The establishment of academics was significant in elevating the artist from craftsmen to gentleman. In the 2 half of the 19 century artists expanded to include contemporary society as well as experimenting with new approaches to light, color, and form. Later in the 19 century rebellion against the academy was associated with the rejection of classicism and led to the early 20 century modern notion. Cult of Bohemia – artists who worked in impressionist and postimpressionist style formed an informal community. The Artist as Individual Innovation of impressionist and postimpressionist set the stage in 20 century for further expansion of subject matter, experimentation with the visible nature of paint, and new approaches to the picture surface.
