Impressionism was a French, anti-establishment style of the late 19th century which asserted completely new and scandalous ideas about art. Although we see it now as a relatively conservative style of tranquility and beauty, it defied all of the conventional artistic approaches of its time. Examine popular works by Monet, Renoir, and Degas, and learn about how these artists, and many other Impressionists, turned the art world on its head! Indeed, Impressionism lasted a relatively short period, but it sure has made a lasting "impression".
