Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 Impressionism Impressionism is categorized by small, thin brushstrokes that seek to capture the effects of light across a given surface. The avant-garde artists of impressionism used the knowledge that shadows contain color and that the times of day and seasons of the year affect the appearance of objects. They often painted in plen-air using a broad color range varying from subtle harmonies to stark contrasting hues. The subject of impressionistic works varies from landscapes and still-lifes to the human figure in movement. There was great influence from Japanese art in the depiction of figures from the back and solid blocks of color without gradations of hues. Also some artists signed there names in anagrams imitating japenese prints. Impressionism originally prided itself in being antiacademic and antibourgeois. Ironically, today they are the hall mark of bourgeois taste.
