Adding Content

    This is sort of a general question. I have 12 hubs on Impressionist artists. I'd like to add more content to them. I have written the biography, added pictures, videos and some quotes. Do you think writing a paragraph or two about how their art effects me or what I think of the artist would be interesting enough? If not, what else do you think I could add to them?

    Thanks smile

    I think the best part of art is how it affects people. I would enjoy reading what your opinions are of each artist's works and then see how they compare to my own interpretations. I love going to art museums with other people because everyone always has a different idea and interpretation of each piece.

    Other than that, it sounds like you have a great formula for 12 great hubs that I look forward to reading!

    In these types of hubs I always struggle a little with the idea of adding my own opinions. I have to wonder "who cares?" If I add my opinion, it changes the whole character of the article from an objective to a subjective viewpoint.

    One thing that I find I can sometimes do, is search out the opinions and reactions of the artist's contemporaries, and when possible, the later opinions of critics. 

    Many artists who are now well known and considered to be great, were slapped down or ignored by those of their own time.

      I actually considered looking for contemporaries opinions. I looked around a bit...but not much. Maybe that is what I'll do smile

    What about linking them all together in a list on each hub so readers into art can learn about them all?

      I think she is doing that as a flagship.

      I do have them all grouped under artists, people can navigate through them from the bottom of the hub.

    No, actually I just did them as part of the hub challenge. I think now it would have been a great capstone series...oh well.

        I don't think so.

    Your views about each artist would make the hub for me. I would like to see your opinions and impressions about the artist, the times, and any other information/opinions from contemporaries etc would be good too.

    I would love to hear more about what the painters who lived at the same time thought of each other. Did they associate? Have coffee at the same cafes in Paris.

    There's this picture in my head of Paris during that period, where writers and painters hang out and have these great conversations. I have no idea if this is accurate or not.

      Most of the impressionists and post-impressionists did hang out together occasionally. They mainly started out as friends first before becoming a movement.
