INDEX NEXT UP LAST ATG Impressionism Impressionism

FIELD OF POPPIES BY CLAUDE MONET Impressionism was politically indifferent, no longer were humans the only centre of interest. Spontaneity became integrated in the work through unpoised images. Shadows became minimised focusing on form, shapes and colours. This style of art was given the name Impressionism after Claude Monet exhibited a work called Impression-Sunrise in an 1874 group show. The works of the group were called impressions and not paintings. [MH] {GB}
