Originating in Paris in the 19th-century, Impressionism is the term given to paintings that are comprised of quick, broken brushstrokes that just barely convey the forms, characters and locations being depicted.  I know this because I paid at least a tiny bit of attention in my high school art class.  Though I suppose I could've just looked the term up on Google, even if I hadn't.  But I digress.

A new series of Impressionistic paintings called 'Zombies in the Landscape' has just come to our attention, from artist George Pfau.  George paints some of horror cinema's most iconic zombies and zombie movie landscapes in the style of Impressionism, using simple strokes of his paint brush to bring to life locations like the mall from Dawn of the Dead (above) and the cemetery from Night of the Living Dead, as well as individual ghouls from those and other movies and TV shows.

Whether or not you dig Impressionist art will be the deciding factor in whether or not you dig George's 'Zombiescapes,' but you can check out a few select pieces below.  Can you name the films that the artist intended to depict, with these paintings?  See if you can and then find the answers as well as more of George's art over on his website!
