The ideas of Impressionism can be traced to the 1860s when Claude Monet, Alfred Sisley, Pierre-Auguste Renoir and others pursued “en plein air” (painting in open air) together. John Rand’s radical invention of paint tubes allowed such a move.
New bright, synthetic colors opened a new world for the painters. In 1874, an expanded group of these painters took the art world by storm. Ignoring the Académie des Beaux-Arts’ Salon de Paris, (the official exhibition and influencer of the art world), this ragtag bunch pooled their money and their works, rented a studio, and set a date. Calling themselves the Anonymous Society of Painters, Sculptors, and Printmakers, they opened against the annual Salon in May 1874.
The art world, and our world, was forever changed. Originally a pejorative term, Impressionism shook the art world to its roots. Critics said the works seemed unfinished and were just “impressions.” What they did not understand was that cameras could now capture realism and the artist was freed to show us their own piercing perceptions. Impressionism is considered the first modern movement in painting.
