Impressionist Art counted cross stitch patterns
1860-1890. Impressionism is a light, spontaneous manner of painting which began in France as a reaction against the restrictions and conventions of the dominant Academic art. The movement's name was derived from Monet's early work, Impression: Sunrise. he hallmark of the style is the attempt to capture the subjective impression of light in a scene.
The core of the earliest Impressionist group was made up of Claude Monet, Alfred Sisley and Pierre-Auguste Renoir. The Impressionist style was probably the single most successful and identifiable "movement" ever, and is still widely practiced today.
