Paisaje Francés II by Francisco Oller y CesteroInstituto de Cultura Puertorriqueña

This artwork shows impressionism at its best...

...as the eye can easily distinguish the short brushstrokes that characterized impressionist painting...

...as well as the use of natural sunlight to bring forth the various shades of green present in the landscape Oller has chosen to represent.

The artist paints outdoors (a technique known as au plein air) to better capture the light.
