On second thought....maybe not.
Perhaps the period of Romanticism, where artists exaggerated certain colors to express the religious and social themes of the day. Or the time of the Realists, where artists like John Constable strove to duplicate the local colors of the landscape.
But I have a yen to get to one of my favorites: the Impressionists. From about 1860 to 1900, artists like Pissarro, Monet, and Renoir chose to give a group middle finger to the teachings of the Neoclassical and Romantic periods, with their dark colors and precise glazes. The Impressionist artists took their easels outside to study light and paint it with bright and loose colors in a single sitting. Light became the subject, rather than the subject itself.
