About Impressionist Paintings

Edgar Degas's painting, 'The Dance Class,' perfectly illustrates the blend of light, personality, and commonality essential to impressionist paintings. This piece features a dancer on an empty floor as she adjusts her outfit. Unlike a classic realistic work, which might have portrayed the dancer in her finest hour of artistic wizardry, Degas chose to capture her at this odd, intimate moment.Therein lies the quintessence of the Impressionist movement. Rather than grabbing a stilted, obvious perspective on an event, the Impressionists sought to capture the romantic moments in the mundane. Witness Edouard Manet's painting, 'The Luncheon on the Grass,' which was famously rejected by the 1863 Paris Academy. This great and beautiful work features a nude woman on a simple picnic with two men.While the Academy was not against nudity in paintings, so to speak, it held moral reservations about showing nudity in nonreligious or non-allegorical contexts. Impressionist paintings were celebrated snapshots of life that focused on non-intuitive angles. At once simplified and vital, Impressionist paintings tried to evoke the beauty of 'en plein air' by capturing ambient sunlight in a host of interesting ways.Impressionists also liked to celebrate the passage of time and to allow the viewer to discover colors without prompting or pressure. Whereas French realists of the period liberally employed the color black to highlight and emphasize contours, the Impressionists eschewed this technique. Instead, they treated black just like any other color, and they layered thick blocky strokes of it.
