Why is Impressionism Significant?

In the 19th century, Impressionism became an artistic movement that swept much of the painting and sculpture styles of the time. It has defined an entirely modern way of expressing one’s artistry and has made its style into other forms of expression such as literature and photography. It started with a group of Parisian artists creating an exhibit in 1873. These artists included Claude Monet, Edgar Degas, Camille Pissarro, and a few others which were later joined by Paul Cezanne, Auguste Renoir, Alfred Sisley and Berthe Morisot. When photography began to emerge in popularity, the value of having a realistic painting seemed to diminish so impressionist artists began to delve into other concepts, such as light, shadows and finding ways to express movement.


Impressionism's influence greatly the way we see art; it showed us there are others way of creating art. It opened doors to other movements that otherwise would not of had a chance. Impressionists challenged the art world so others could see they could create art in different ways.
