"Every age projects its own image in its arts." Impressionism (1870-1905) was a artistic style initially rejected by the classical and respected artists of its time, due to its rejection of fine detail. This art style focused more on the ephemeral and fleeting parts of everday life such as certain times of day, and weather situations. In addition, impressionism shied away from the whimisical and high life of the upper class, and focused more on the common people. Post-Impressionism, like impressionism, was an art style born during the tail end of the 19th century, and also followed the same subject guidlines of impressionism. This style focused on the technique of pointillism, which created paintings made of many dots, allowing the viewers to focus on color to paint the image.
