Chapter 13.1 Impressionism Late 1800s, France The use of bright, fragmented, pure color and a preoccupation with the effects of light were among the hallmarks of Impressionist painting. High-keyed colors made from synthetic materials, readily available in tubes, made it easy for artists to paint out of doors to study and capture the fleeting effects of light. The popularity of Japanese wood block prints brought the influence of asymmetrical compositions which used rhythmic, flattened, brightly colored forms.

He was trained as a traditional painter and was influenced by the painterly brushwork of Spanish painters Goya and Velazquez, as well as by Japanese woodcuts.
