Impressionism as an artform has a rich history, beginning in the 1860’s after the advent of photography. The impressionism movement allowed artists to move away from realist ideals and focus on capturing the feeling of a scene rather than the details. Because impressionism was such a radical movement in art history, truly understanding the impressionist movement involves a familiarity with the history and ideals of the more influential impressionist painters. The works presented here have been inspired by painters such as Monet, Renoir, Degas, and Cezzane.
