The impressionist art style originated in Paris as a reaction to the traditionalist styles prevalent at the time, heavily popularised by Claude Monet in the 1870s.

The styles focus is on how the light of the day and colour can affect how a subject appears, utilising short, deliberate and perceptible brush strokes to develop the depth and scope of the piece.

The colours utilised are often bright and vibrant, though as the style developed and became more widespread, shades of black would become more widely used.

The subjects of impressionist pieces are traditionally landscapes and cityscapes, focusing on catching contemporary life, however as the style has developed throughout modern history, a great deal of variety has arisen in the subjects portrayed within impressionist pieces.

Impressionism is considered one of the pioneering styles of the Modern Art movement.
