Impressionism originated in France in the 1860’s and was characterized by the idea of creating images that captured a visual impression of a moment in time, as it pertained to the shifting and ever-changing effects of light and color.   Impressionist painters, such as Claude Monet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Albert Sisley and Camille Pissarro, rejected established styles of painting, and were interested in a new way of seeing.   These painters deviated from the clear depiction of nature and linear perspective, experimenting with loose paint handling, bold color and unconventional compositions. It was an art about atmosphere, immediacy and movement, a shift away from form to an interest in the properties of light.  Impressionism was a precursor to later avant-garde art movements.
