Impressionist Art

The Impressionist style of art emerged in Paris in the mid to late 1800’s and got its name from Claude Monet’s work, Impression.  Impressionism is characterized by works that seek to portray the experience of a scene including elements such as light, wind and shadows.  The painting style often consisted of short “broken” brush strokes and the use of more pure unmixed color.  Claude Monet, Camille Pissarro, Alfred Sisley, Auguste Renoir, Edgar Degas are considered to be the leading Impressionist artists of the period.

 

The Impressionists were initially rejected by the juried arts stewards who controlled who and what could be exhibited at the official Paris art show, the Salon so they created their own exhibition calling themselves the Anonymous Society of Painters, Sculptors and Printmakers and they held eight of their own independent shows between 1874 and 1886.
