    I have edited the opening post with the Season 8 winners, now @ladylurks is in the hall of fame as a winner, and @DameOctaviaSpencer as runner up!


    And I guess with all the awards and S&S hopla this isn't a great moment to announce it, but I guess I'll remind voters once we're closer to the time of the upcoming seasons, but for the upcoming seasons, I was planning to:

    1- Have them in late March, and April-May (hopefully finishing before Cannes).

    2- Have twin seasons (perhaps with fewer participants), not separatred by a long time, maybe only by a week or two. Maybe shorter seasons (just 9 rounds instead of 11?) if the players want to.

    3- The reason for making them twin seasons, is that both would be focused on turn-of-the-century (that is, 19th to 20th century) movements, and movements that we have already done, but split differently. The last time I made a turn-of-century season, most people ditched the post-impressionists in favor of the symbolists. So, since we already picked most of the big impressionists in Season 3, my idea was grouping now, this time, the post-impressionists with the impressionists. That way, people who are not into post-impressionists can still pick an impressionist (we played many of the big ones, but there are still magnificent painters left), and others can pick post-impressionists (there are so many big ones still un-played: Gaugin, Seurat, Rousseau...).

    4- So, the subsequent turn-of-century, twin, season would be focused on symbolism, art-nouevau and decadentism. We played many biggies, but this era is ripe for re-discovery and there are hundreds that are worth playing. In fact, it probably won't be the last season with this theme.


    In short, the idea is:

    LATE MARCH & APRIL: IMPRESSIONISM AND PRE- AND POST-IMPRESSIONISM.

    APRIL AND EARLY MAY: SYMBOLISM, DECADENTISM AND ART NOUVEAU


    I hope people are as excited about these two seasons as I am. They're the ones I was most anxious to play.


    You have a lot of time to pick a painter if you want to participate. As of now, I think I have more or less "reserved" @Habsburg for "Impressionism and Post-Impressionism" with Rousseau, if dear Habsy wants to, and @CINNAMON with, tentatively, James McNeill Whistler. I will of course participate, but I'm still undecided between many painters.


    In the first page you can find every painter that was ever played, but here I post...


    SOME IMPRESSIONIST AND POST-IMPRESSIONIST PAINTERS, WITH THOSE ALREADY PLAYED OR RESERVED SCRATCHED:

    From the core group of Impressionism:

    Frédéric Bazille
    Gustave Caillebotte
    Mary Cassatt
    Edgar Degas
    Armand Guillaumin
    Édouard Manet
    Claude Monet
    Berthe Morisot
    Camille Pissarro
    Pierre-Auguste Renoir
    Alfred Sisley

    From outside France, I recommend this wikipedia link, but have in mind that the following have already been played:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Impres...#Beyond_France

    Childe Hassam
    Konstantin Korovin
    Valentin Serov
    Joaquin Sorolla
    Ignacio Pinzao Camarlench


    Worry not, there are still countless that could easily win a Painter Idol season).


    From Pre-Impressionism, or those artists that influenced it the most, you could pick, for instance:

    Camille Corot
    Eugéne Boudin

    People who are considered precursors of impressionism too, like Manet, Turner or Courbet have already been played.


    And, from post-impressionism or neo-impressionism, I also recommend this Wikipedia entry, but I add this list of suggestions, with those already played scratched:

    Paul Gaugin
    Vincent Van Gogh
    Georges Seurat
    Paul Signac
    Henri Toulouse-Lautrec
    Paul Cézanne
    Édouard Vuillard

    But there are many, many more, here's the link:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Post-Impressionism


    In a couple of days I'll do something similar for the symbolists, decadentists and art-nouveau painters.

    Thanks to everyone who wants to participate, and see you soon!
