Original Impressionist Fine Art for Sale
Originating in France in the 1860s, the Impressionist art movement is known for its use of vibrant colors, shadowing, and loose brushwork that depicts the “impression” and emotion of everyday moments and subjects. Rather than focusing on the accuracy and precision of the images, Impressionist artists placed emphasis on the spontaneity of the moment and longer brushstrokes to show shadows and the changing colors of nature. French Impressionists opposed classical subject matter and instead, embraced subjects and scenes from everyday life. From original landscape paintings, to objects, or even portraits, Impressionist painters preferred working on their canvases outside in fresh air. Impressionism is considered the first Modern Art movement, and Impressionist art is now some of the most popular amongst art collectors. The French Impressionist art movement expanded to other parts of the world, including the rest of Europe, Russia and America. More notably, the famous American Artist Childe Hassam was highly inspired by the growing amount of French Impressionist paintings he had seen in museums and curated collections.
