Impressionism is an art movement that emerged in the late 19th century, primarily in France, and is characterized by its emphasis on capturing fleeting moments of light, colour, and atmosphere in a direct and spontaneous manner. Impressionist artists depict their immediate sensory experiences of the world around them, often focusing on scenes from everyday life, landscapes, and urban settings.
Common characteristics of Impressionist art include playful use of light and colour, loose and visible brushwork, and depiction of scenes, landscapes and moments. Prominent Impressionist artists include Claude Monet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Edgar Degas, Camille Pissarro, and Berthe Morisot, among others.
Impressionism emphasizes an artist's subjective experience and has paved the way for new ways of depicting reality that focus on individual perception and sensory impressions.
