What is "Intimist Art"?
Webster's New World College Dictonary describes the word Intimist as follows:
“Intimist: dealing largely with intimate, personal thoughts and feelings in literature and art.”
Intimist visual artists tend to create images that originate in the soul and speak of the desires and state of the heart, whether consciously or not. More often than not, my paintings teach me more about myself than I could learn without the creation process. Unintended and subtle meanings can creep into my works, as if they had a mind and intent of their own.
One example of a painter who painted in this style is Edouard Vuillard (1868-1940). Vuillard was a post-impressionist master who painted in France. For more information on Vuillard see:
