The avant-garde French artists of the late 19th century, known as Impressionists, created changes in style, subject matter, and even the marketing of works of art. We’ll explore the eight Impressionist exhibitions as well as the stylistic development and differences amongst the Impressionists in the 1860’s, 70’s, 80’s and 90’s, looking at works by Monet, Renoir, Degas, Pissarro, Morisot, and Cassatt among others. The impact of the Impressionists on American artists will be illustrated in the paintings of artists such as Robinson, Hassam, Twachtman, and Benson.
