im·pres·sion·ism –
imˈpreSHəˌnizəm noun

  1. a style or movement in painting originating in France in the 1860s, characterized by a concern with depicting the visual impression of the moment, especially in terms of the shifting effect of light and color.
    • a literary or artistic style that seeks to capture a feeling or experience rather than to achieve accurate depiction.

The best impressionists evoke feelings of joy or pain, happiness, strife – emotion. Impressionism is a radical art movement that began in the late 1800’s. Considered by many to be the father’s of the movement – Monet, Sisley and Renoir all pursued plein air painting at the same time. We won’t get into the entire history of the movement – we are going to focus on the paintings themselves. The list of the 10 Best Impressionism Masterpieces are found below-
