Impressionism, Post Impressionism Oil Paintings
Impressionist art movement began in France in the late 19th century by four students in the studio of painter Marc Gleyre: Monet, Renoir, Sisley, and Bazille. The artists were characterized by their visual impressions influenced by nature, and in life around them rather than in historical subjects. The impressionist art movement sought to capture whatever they happened to see at a given moment by using pure, broken and often unmixed color to achieve an appearance of spontaneity.
