Impressionist Painters And Paintings

Updated on March 20, 2018


Impressionism was a painting style in the late 1800's. The term impressionism was coined by a negative review of Claude Monet's painting called Impression, Soleil Levant or Impression Sunrise, which is featured on the right. The main painting at the very top is a painting by Monet is of Trouville in France.

I really love and enjoy art, especially the Dutch Masters and Impressionism art. Some of the great painters of the style of impressionism that you may have heard of are: Monet, Degas and Renoir, but there are many others.

I am going to show some paintings of a few of my favorites from the more well known artists and some from artists that aren't as well recognized. I have also created a video featuring many more paintings from the art movement of impressionism.

I hope that you enjoy some of my favorite paintings that I have chosen from the Impressionism movement as much as I do!

The Impressionism movement in art wasn't well received at first by art critics of that time and was an innovative and bold move for the artists that started it.

Some of the characteristics of Impressionism are brush strokes that didn't mix or blend the paints.

The use of light and movement in the subjects to catch the character and meaning of the subjects with disregard to the minute detail of earlier paintings and styles.

Painters from the Impressionism art movement were also well known for painting outside in the air and daylight which invigorated their painting styles as opposed to the more accepted, yet darker paintings of earlier periods.

      I love impressionistic art also. You mentioned the Dutch Masters, and I love them too, though wasn't as acquainted with those artists as I was with impressionistic ones. I love the paintings you shared, and enjoyed learning some new things I didn't know before. I hadn't realized how it wasn't quite accepted at first, and the turn it was taking from prior periods. It sure made a great impact ever since! Loved it, thank you.
