MuseumSpot > Impressionists

Impressionists

The Impressionists turned the 19th-century art world on its head with the inventive use of light in their work and interpretive views of simple subjects. The Internet has a wealth of information about the lives and work of some of the most important artists of the last millennium. Impressionist art grew to have phenomenal commercial appeal long after the movement itself had ended.

These sites introduce a sampling of some Impressionist painters and their works.

Claude Monet

GiVerNet allows visitors to glance at Monet's garden in Giverny, the setting of his famous Water Lilies series. It also directs visitors to where Monet's paintings are located in museums around the globe. Check out The Artchive for a biography and a review of his work at the First Impressionist Exhibition in 1874.

Edgar Degas

Artcyclopedia offers links to articles and sites about Degas. Browse photos of his paintings, including many featuring young ballet dancers. Impressionist Art Prints.com has a detailed biography of Degas and allows consumers to purchase books about the artist and prints of his work.




Berthe Morisot

Morisot's paintings demonstrate her artistic prowess and feminine sensitivity. See "Image of a Woman at her Toilette," "The Cradle" and a biography at CGFA- A Virtual Art Museum. Artcyclopedia offers more information about her life and works.

Mary Cassatt

Known for making women and children her most popular subjects, you can study some of her more famous works, including "The Bath," at MyStudios.com. The Resource Library Magazine describes the life of this remarkable woman, who was the only American to exhibit work among the Impressionists in Paris.

Pierre-Augustee Rnoir

The Worldwide Art Gallery offers more background information about Renoir, including the period he served in the Franco-Prussian war; the identity of the female subject of 20 of his early paintings; and which person painted in "The Luncheon of the Boating Party" represented his future wife.
