Impressionism is still widely practiced today with many contemporary artists heavily influenced by the impressionist movement from the 19th century. Originating in Paris, where independent exhibitions brought the movements founders fame during the latter part of the century, well-known Impressionist artists include Claude Monet, Édouard Manet and Pierre-Auguste Renoir.
The Impressionists abandoned traditional linear perspective, instead using loose brush strokes to depict light and energy, capturing shifts of atmosphere and changes in weather.
Impressionist painting today continues this style. Artists typically paint colourful, outdoor scenes that are bright and vibrant. Go somewhere beautiful with our Impressionism Collection and find paintings for sale by Australia's best established and emerging artists.
