Art on Friday; French Impressionists

Impressionism was an art movement that started in the mid-19th century and rose to popularity in the last quarter of the century. The movement was inspired by a variety of factors, including anti-establishment, foreign/asian influences and a desire to paint modern life instead of academic subjects of history and mythology. 

Today I want to show all French impressionism paintings; 

Édouard Manet-Beach at Bologne

Edgar Degas-Waiting

Paul Cézanne-L'Estaque,Melting Snow

 Claude Monet-The Cliffs at Etretat

 Pierre-Auguste Renoir- La Seine at Chatou

Henri Moret-Row of large poplars
