Impressionism Movement, Artists and Major Works | The Art Story

Impressionism Movement, Artists and Major Works | The Art Story | Western Art Music in Context | Scoop.it

In turning away from the fine finish and detail to which most artists of their day aspired, the Impressionists aimed to capture the momentary, sensory effect of a scene - the impression objects made on the eye in a fleeting instant. To achieve this effect, many Impressionist artists moved from the studio to the streets and countryside, painting en plein air.
