Their independent  exhibitions  brought them to prominence during the 1870s and 1880s, in spite of harsh opposition from the conventional art community in France. The name of the style derives from the title of a  Claude Monet  work,  Impression, soleil levant  (  Impression, Sunrise  ), which provoked the critic  Louis Leroy  to  coin  the term in a  satirical  review published in the Parisian newspaper   Le Charivari  .  Impressionist painting characteristics include relatively small, thin, yet visible brush strokes, open  composition , emphasis on accurate depiction of light in its changing qualities (often accentuating the effects of the passage of time), ordinary subject matter, inclusion of  movement  as a crucial element of human perception and experience, and unusual visual angles. The development of Impressionism in the  visual arts  was soon followed by analogous styles in other media that became known as  impressionist music  and  impressionist literature .     Contents    1   Overview      2   Beginnings      3   Impressionist techniques      4   Content and composition      5   Main Impressionists      6   Gallery      7   Timeline: Lives of the Impressionists      8   Associates and influenced artists      9   Beyond France      10   Sculpture, photography and film      11   Music and literature      12   Post-Impressionism      13   See also      14   Notes      15   References      16   External links        Overview       Pierre-Auguste Renoir ,  Dance at Le Moulin de la Galette ( Bal du moulin de la Galette ) ,  Musée d'Orsay , 1876  Radicals in their time, early Impressionists violated the rules of academic painting. They constructed their pictures from freely brushed colours that took precedence over lines and contours, following the example of painters such as  Eugène Delacroix  and  J. M. W. Turner . They also painted realistic scenes of modern life, and often painted outdoors. Previously,  still lifes  and  portraits  as well as  landscapes  were usually painted in a studio.  [ 1 ]   The Impressionists found that they could capture the momentary and transient effects of sunlight by painting   en plein air  . They portrayed overall visual effects instead of details, and used short "broken" brush strokes of mixed and pure unmixed colour—not blended smoothly or shaded, as was customary—to achieve an effect of intense colour vibration.  Impressionism emerged in France at the same time that a number of other painters, including the Italian artists known as the  Macchiaioli , and  Winslow Homer  in the United States, were also exploring  plein-air  painting. The Impressionists, however, developed new techniques specific to the style. Encompassing what its adherents argued was a different way of seeing, it is an art of immediacy and movement, of candid poses and compositions, of the play of light expressed in a bright and varied use of colour.  The public, at first hostile, gradually came to believe that the Impressionists had captured a fresh and original vision, even if the art critics and art establishment disapproved of the new style.  By recreating the sensation in the eye that views the subject, rather than delineating the details of the subject, and by creating a welter of techniques and forms, Impressionism is a precursor of various painting styles, including  Neo-Impressionism ,  Post-Impressionism ,  Fauvism , and  Cubism .   Beginnings   In the middle of the 19th century—a time of change, as Emperor  Napoleon III  rebuilt Paris and waged war—the  Académie des Beaux-Arts  dominated French art. The Académie was the preserver of traditional French painting standards of content and style. Historical subjects, religious themes, and portraits were valued; landscape and still life were not. The Académie preferred carefully finished images that looked realistic when examined closely. Paintings in this style were made up of precise brush strokes carefully blended to hide the artist's hand in the work.  [ 2 ]   Colour was restrained and often toned down further by the application of a golden varnish.  [ 3 ]    The Académie had an annual, juried art show, the  Salon de Paris , and artists whose work was displayed in the show won prizes, garnered commissions, and enhanced their prestige. The standards of the juries represented the values of the Académie, represented by the works of such artists as  Jean-Léon Gérôme  and  Alexandre Cabanel .  In the early 1860s, four young painters— Claude Monet ,  Pierre-Auguste Renoir ,  Alfred Sisley , and  Frédéric Bazille —met while studying under the academic artist  Charles Gleyre . They discovered that they shared an interest in painting landscape and contemporary life rather than historical or mythological scenes. Following a practice that had become increasingly popular by mid-century, they often ventured into the countryside together to paint in the open air, but not for the purpose of making sketches to be developed into carefully finished works in the studio, as was the usual custom.  [ 4 ]   By painting in sunlight directly from nature, and making bold use of the vivid synthetic pigments that had become available since the beginning of the century, they began to develop a lighter and brighter manner of painting that extended further the  Realism  of  Gustave Courbet  and the  Barbizon school . A favourite meeting place for the artists was the  Café Guerbois  on Avenue de Clichy in Paris, where the discussions were often led by  Édouard Manet , whom the younger artists greatly admired. They were soon joined by  Camille Pissarro ,  Paul Cézanne , and  Armand Guillaumin .  [ 5 ]        Édouard Manet ,   The Luncheon on the Grass   ( Le déjeuner sur l'herbe ), 1863  During the 1860s, the Salon jury routinely rejected about half of the works submitted by Monet and his friends in favour of works by artists faithful to the approved style.  [ 6 ]   In 1863, the Salon jury rejected Manet's  The Luncheon on the Grass   ( Le déjeuner sur l'herbe )  primarily because it depicted a nude woman with two clothed men at a picnic. While the Salon jury routinely accepted nudes in historical and allegorical paintings, they condemned Manet for placing a realistic nude in a contemporary setting.  [ 7 ]   The jury's severely worded rejection of Manet's painting appalled his admirers, and the unusually large number of rejected works that year perturbed many French artists.  After Emperor Napoleon III saw the rejected works of 1863, he decreed that the public be allowed to judge the work themselves, and the  Salon des Refusés  (Salon of the Refused) was organized. While many viewers came only to laugh, the Salon des Refusés drew attention to the existence of a new tendency in art and attracted more visitors than the regular Salon.  [ 8 ]        Alfred Sisley ,  View of the Saint-Martin Canal, Paris,  1870,  Musée d'Orsay   Artists' petitions requesting a new Salon des Refusés in 1867, and again in 1872, were denied. In December 1873,  Monet ,  Renoir ,  Pissarro ,  Sisley ,  Cézanne ,  Berthe Morisot ,  Edgar Degas  and several other artists founded the  Société Anonyme Coopérative des Artistes Peintres, Sculpteurs, Graveurs  ("Cooperative and Anonymous Association of Painters, Sculptors, and Engravers") to exhibit their artworks independently.  [ 9 ]   Members of the association were expected to forswear participation in the Salon.  [ 10 ]   The organizers invited a number of other progressive artists to join them in their inaugural exhibition, including the older  Eugène Boudin , whose example had first persuaded Monet to adopt  plein air  painting years before.  [ 11 ]   Another painter who greatly influenced Monet and his friends,  Johan Jongkind , declined to participate, as did  Édouard Manet . In total, thirty artists participated in their first exhibition, held in April 1874 at the studio of the photographer  Nadar .      Claude Monet ,   Impression, soleil levant   ( Impression, Sunrise ), 1872, oil on canvas,  Musée Marmottan Monet ,  Paris   The critical response was mixed. Monet and Cézanne received the harshest attacks. Critic and humorist  Louis Leroy  wrote a scathing review in the newspaper  Le Charivari  in which, making wordplay with the title of Claude Monet's   Impression, Sunrise    (Impression, soleil levant) , he gave the artists the name by which they became known. Derisively titling his article   The Exhibition of the Impressionists  , Leroy declared that Monet's painting was at most, a sketch, and could hardly be termed a finished work.  He wrote, in the form of a dialog between viewers,   Impression—I was certain of it. I was just telling myself that, since I was impressed, there had to be some impression in it ... and what freedom, what ease of workmanship! Wallpaper in its embryonic state is more finished than that seascape.   [ 12 ]        Claude Monet ,   Woman with a Parasol - Madame Monet and Her Son   (Camille and Jean Monet), 1875,  National Gallery of Art ,  Washington, D.C.   The term  impressionists  quickly gained favour with the public. It was also accepted by the artists themselves, even though they were a diverse group in style and temperament, unified primarily by their spirit of independence and rebellion. They exhibited together—albeit with shifting membership—eight times between 1874 and 1886. The Impressionists' style, with its loose, spontaneous brushstrokes, would soon become synonymous with modern life.  [ 3 ]    Monet, Sisley, Morisot, and Pissarro may be considered the "purest" Impressionists, in their consistent pursuit of an art of spontaneity, sunlight, and colour. Degas rejected much of this, as he believed in the primacy of drawing over colour and belittled the practice of painting outdoors.  [ 13 ]   Renoir turned away from Impressionism for a time during the 1880s, and never entirely regained his commitment to its ideas. Édouard Manet, although regarded by the Impressionists as their leader,  [ 14 ]   never abandoned his liberal use of black as a colour, and never participated in the Impressionist exhibitions. He continued to submit his works to the Salon, where his painting  Spanish Singer  had won a 2nd class medal in 1861, and he urged the others to do likewise, arguing that "the Salon is the real field of battle" where a reputation could be made.  [ 15 ]        Camille Pissarro ,  Boulevard Montmartre,  1897, the  Hermitage ,  Saint Petersburg   Among the artists of the core group (minus Bazille, who had died in the  Franco-Prussian War  in 1870), defections occurred as Cézanne, followed later by Renoir, Sisley, and Monet, abstained from the group exhibitions so they could submit their works to the Salon. Disagreements arose from issues such as Guillaumin's membership in the group, championed by Pissarro and Cézanne against opposition from Monet and Degas, who thought him unworthy.  [ 16 ]   Degas invited  Mary Cassatt  to display her work in the 1879 exhibition, but also insisted on the inclusion of  Jean-François Raffaëlli ,  Ludovic Lepic , and other realists who did not represent Impressionist practices, causing Monet in 1880 to accuse the Impressionists of "opening doors to first-come daubers".  [ 17 ]   The group divided over invitations to  Paul Signac  and  Georges Seurat  to exhibit with them in 1886. Pissarro was the only artist to show at all eight Impressionist exhibitions.  The individual artists achieved few financial rewards from the Impressionist exhibitions, but their art gradually won a degree of public acceptance and support. Their dealer,  Durand-Ruel , played a major role in this as he kept their work before the public and arranged shows for them in London and New York. Although Sisley died in poverty in 1899, Renoir had a great Salon success in 1879. Monet became secure financially during the early 1880s and so did Pissarro by the early 1890s. By this time the methods of Impressionist painting, in a diluted form, had become commonplace in Salon art.  [ 18 ]     Impressionist techniques       Mary Cassatt ,  Lydia Leaning on Her Arms  (in a theatre box), 1879  French painters who prepared the way for Impressionism include the  Romantic  colourist  Eugène Delacroix , the leader of the realists  Gustave Courbet , and painters of the Barbizon school such as  Théodore Rousseau . The Impressionists learned much from the work of  Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot  and  Eugène Boudin , who painted from nature in a style that was similar to Impressionism, and who befriended and advised the younger artists.  A number of identifiable techniques and working habits contributed to the innovative style of the Impressionists. Although these methods had been used by previous artists—and are often conspicuous in the work of artists such as  Frans Hals ,  Diego Velázquez ,  Peter Paul Rubens ,  John Constable , and  J. M. W. Turner —the Impressionists were the first to use them all together, and with such consistency. These techniques include:  Short, thick strokes of paint quickly capture the essence of the subject, rather than its details. The paint is often applied  impasto .  Colours are applied side-by-side with as little mixing as possible, a technique that exploits the principle of  simultaneous contrast  to make the colour appear more vivid to the viewer.  Grays and dark tones are produced by mixing  complementary colours . Pure impressionism avoids the use of black paint.   Wet paint is placed into wet paint  without waiting for successive applications to dry, producing softer edges and intermingling of colour.  Impressionist paintings do not exploit the transparency of thin paint films (glazes), which earlier artists manipulated carefully to produce effects. The impressionist painting surface is typically opaque.  The paint is applied to a white or light-coloured ground. Previously, painters often used dark grey or strongly coloured grounds.  The play of natural light is emphasized. Close attention is paid to the reflection of colours from object to object. Painters often worked in the evening to produce   effets de soir  —the shadowy effects of evening or twilight.  In paintings made   en plein air   (outdoors), shadows are boldly painted with the blue of the sky as it is reflected onto surfaces, giving a sense of freshness previously not represented in painting. (Blue shadows on snow inspired the technique.)  New technology played a role in the development of the style. Impressionists took advantage of the mid-century introduction of premixed paints in tin tubes (resembling modern toothpaste tubes), which allowed artists to work more spontaneously, both outdoors and indoors.  [ 19 ]   Previously, painters made their own paints individually, by grinding and mixing dry pigment powders with linseed oil, which were then stored in animal bladders.  [ 20 ]    Many vivid synthetic pigments became commercially available to artists for the first time during the 19th century. These included  cobalt blue ,  viridian ,  cadmium yellow , and synthetic  ultramarine blue , all of which were in use by the 1840s, before Impressionism.  [ 21 ]   The Impressionists' manner of painting made bold use of these pigments, as well as even newer colours such as  cerulean blue ,  [ 3 ]   which became commercially available to artists in the 1860s.  [ 21 ]    The Impressionists' progress toward a brighter style of painting was gradual. During the 1860s, Monet and Renoir sometimes painted on canvases prepared with the traditional red-brown or grey ground.  [ 22 ]   By the 1870s, Monet, Renoir, and Pissarro usually chose to paint on grounds of a lighter grey or beige colour, which functioned as a middle tone in the finished painting.  [ 22 ]   By the 1880s, some of the Impressionists had come to prefer white or slightly off-white grounds, and no longer allowed the ground colour a significant role in the finished painting.  [ 23 ]     Content and composition       Camille Pissarro ,  Hay Harvest at Éragny,  1901,  National Gallery of Canada ,  Ottawa ,  Ontario   Prior to the Impressionists, other painters, notably such  17th-century Dutch painters  as  Jan Steen , had emphasized common subjects, but their methods of  composition  were traditional. They arranged their compositions so that the main subject commanded the viewer's attention. The Impressionists relaxed the boundary between subject and background so that the effect of an Impressionist painting often resembles a snapshot, a part of a larger reality captured as if by chance.  [ 24 ]    Photography  was gaining popularity, and as cameras became more portable, photographs became more candid. Photography inspired Impressionists to represent momentary action, not only in the fleeting lights of a landscape, but in the day-to-day lives of people.      Berthe Morisot ,  Reading,  1873,  Cleveland Museum of Art   The development of Impressionism can be considered partly as a reaction by artists to the challenge presented by photography, which seemed to devalue the artist's skill in reproducing reality. Both portrait and  landscape  paintings were deemed somewhat deficient and lacking in truth as photography "produced lifelike images much more efficiently and reliably".  [ 25 ]    In spite of this, photography actually inspired artists to pursue other means of artistic expression, and rather than compete with photography to emulate reality, artists focused "on the one thing they could inevitably do better than the photograph—by further developing into an art form its very subjectivity in the conception of the image, the very subjectivity that photography eliminated".  [ 25 ]   The Impressionists sought to express their perceptions of nature, rather than create exact representations. This allowed artists to depict subjectively what they saw with their "tacit imperatives of taste and conscience".  [ 26 ]   Photography encouraged painters to exploit aspects of the painting medium, like colour, which photography then lacked: "The Impressionists were the first to consciously offer a subjective alternative to the photograph".  [ 25 ]        Claude Monet ,  Jardin à Sainte-Adresse,  1867,  Metropolitan Museum of Art , New York.,  [ 27 ]   a work showing the influence of Japanese prints  Another major influence was Japanese art prints ( Japonism ), which originally came into France as wrapping paper on imported goods. The art of these prints contributed significantly to the "snapshot" angles and unconventional compositions that became characteristic of Impressionism. An example is Monet's  Jardin à Sainte-Adresse,  1867, with its bold blocks of colour and composition on a strong diagonal slant showing the influence of Japanese prints  [ 28 ]     Edgar Degas  was both an avid photographer and a collector of Japanese prints.  [ 29 ]   His  The Dance Class   (La classe de danse)  of 1874 shows both influences in its asymmetrical composition. The dancers are seemingly caught off guard in various awkward poses, leaving an expanse of empty floor space in the lower right quadrant. He also captured his dancers in sculpture, such as the   Little Dancer of Fourteen Years  .
