The Impressionist Movement

Dec - 3 - 2012

The Impressionist era centered in France during the late 19th century, where the volatile political and social climate provided a fertile soil for the birth of an art movement that went against the grain of the traditional. The movement’s name came from Monet’s early work, Impression: A Sunrise, which was singled out for criticism by an art critique Louis Leroy on its exhibition. This art at first was viewed as controversial and it was considered to threaten the values that fine art meant to uphold. Only when Camille Pisaro died in 1903 have the critiques agreed that this movement was the main 19th century artistic revolution and that all its members were among the finest painters.

The first large exhibition of Impressionism was held in 1874. “The Exposition des Impressionistes” was comprised entirely of Impressionist paintings rejected by the formal Salons “Le Salon Refusés”. The original movement comprises the work produced between 1867 and 1886 by a group of artist who shared similar techniques and approaches. Some of the most influential impressionistic painters were Claude Monet, Pierre August Renoir, Edgar Degas, Édouard Manet, Alfred Sisley, Berthe Morisot, Camille Pissarro and Armand Guillaumin.
