The Impressionists

Impressionist art was a stark change from how painting had been done in the centuries before. The artists involved used the same media, oil and canvas, but changed the processes involved to paint a picture. Using a technique called en plein air, the artists worked outside away from the stuffy and archaic studio. Changing the technique away from strict lines and dull colors to blurred lines and brilliant bright colors the Impressionists communicated the idea of beauty in a new, but somehow more truthful way. This gallery is a collection of Impressionist artists, the artists who inspired them, and the artist who are considered post-Impressionist. I put together this gallery to illustrate what a cohesive and historical gallery might look like. If a museum could have any paintings in the world to divine the progression of the Impressionist movement, these artists would be included and possibly these paintings.
