About this Curation

Impressionism is considered the first modern movement in painting. First developing in Paris, it spread across Europe reaching as far as the United States. Impressionist artists aimed to capture the energy within the scene instead of realistic representation. This being the difference between what the brain understands and what the eye sees. Alongside this the Impressionists abandoned traditional linear perspective and used loose brush strokes to depict light and energy, like shifts of atmosphere and changes in weather. Here's a curation of some which stand out.
