1 Impressionist & Post- Impressionist Painters A collection of Impressionist art

2 What is Impressionism? Impressionism is a style of painting that began in Paris, France in the mid-1800s. Unlike artists before them, the impressionists painted most of their paintings outdoors and liked to portray natural subjects like trees, fields, and oceans. Impressionists would often take their materials outdoors and paint what they saw. This is called painting en plein air. The style was called impressionism because the artists were not as exacting about painting a realistic picture. There are several characteristics of Impressionism: Ordinary people and situations are often the subjects Short, visible brush strokes are often used Light and shadow was important They used color to depict light The paintings featured backgrounds and not just the subject in the center

3 Edouard Manet ( ) Edouard Manet was born in 1832 in France and died in He transitioned from realism to impressionism. With his painting Luncheon on the Grass, Manet received a lot of criticism but it also got the attention of several other painters who would then form the impressionist style.

4 Claude Monet ( ) Claude Monet was born in 1840 in France. He was one of the most famous impressionist painters. He died from lung cancer in 1926 at the age of 86. He was a purist in the impressionist style and never wavered from it for the duration of his art. In fact, his painting Impression: Sunrise was how impressionism got its name. Monet liked to use his family in paintings.
