The Fundamentals of Color

  • Is an art movement and style of painting that started in France during the 1860s. Impressionism is a light, spontaneous manner of painting
  • The movement's name came from Claude Monet's early work, Impression: A Sunrise, which was singled out for criticism in an exhibition. The style captures light in a scene.

  • “IMPRESSION, SUNRISE”,1872 gave the name to the entire Impressionist movement.
  • Although the work of the Impressionist painters appears very spontaneous, they carefully and scientifically planned their work.
  • The core of the earliest Impressionist group was made up of Claude Monet, Renoir, and Sisley.
  • Others associated with this period were Pissarro, Degas, Manet, and Mary Cassatt.
impressionism background information
ImpressionismBackground Information
  • Impressionist painters were considered radical in their time because they broke many of picture-making rules set by earlier generations.
  • They found many of their subjects in life around them rather than in history.
  • Here's a list that might help to remember the issues important to most Impressionists:

EEveryday life

LLight and Color


O Outdoor settings

WWeather and atmosphere

  • Everyday Life
  • The impressionists tried to paint what they saw at a given moment.
  • They often painted outdoors, rather than in a studio, so they could observe nature more directly.
  • Light and Color
  • The Impressionists used vibrant, light colors, sometimes mixed directly on the canvas. This technique and application was much different than the darker colors used earlier in traditional art.
  • Brushstrokes:
  • Fascinated with capturing movement, Impressionists applied their paint with quick, brushstrokes.
  • Outdoor setting:
  • The Impressionists valued nature as a subject for their paintings. Unlike academic artists, they painted real life landscapes as they saw them.
  • Rather than painting historical, religious, or mythological subjects, the Impressionists chose to paint everyday scenes from the world they knew.
  • Weather & Atmosphere

Outdoor natural scenes.
