Why Impressionist art?
We find Impressionist artwork not only in museums and galleries, but also in calendars, reproductions, posters, memo pads. Visually pleasing yet also stimulating–after all, the viewer is far from passive, since his or her eyes creates the visual impression of the painting from afar–Impressionism combines radical innovations with a reassuring resemblance (of the objects painted to their real-life counterparts), or verisimilitude. In other words, it offers the best of both worlds.
The colors and shapes, the ideas created, all can be related to in multitudes of ways. perhaps this is why Impressionism is so popular; People from all walks of life can look at these works and all relate in their own way.

These were the trend setters of Impressionism, the initial band of artists who met, formulated their working plans, exhibited and (mostly) lived in Paris during the mid- to late 19th Century. It was they who suffered the initial critical slings and arrows, they who have influenced every generation of artists since, and they who, in retrospect, changed forever how we think about, view and create art.
