It was also accepted by the artists themselves, even though they were a diverse group in style and temperament, unified primarily by their spirit of independence and rebellion. They exhibited together—albeit with shifting membership—eight times between and The Impressionists' style, with its loose, spontaneous brushstrokes, would soon become synonymous with modern life. Monet, Sisley, Morisot, and Pissarro may be considered the "purest" Impressionists, in their consistent pursuit of an art of spontaneity, sunlight, and colour. Degas rejected much of this, as he believed in the primacy of drawing over colour and belittled the practice of painting outdoors.
He continued to submit his works to the Salon, where his painting Spanish Singer had won a 2nd class medal in , and he urged the others to do likewise, arguing that "the Salon is the real field of battle" where a reputation could be made. Pissarro was the only artist to show at all eight Impressionist exhibitions.
The individual artists achieved few financial rewards from the Impressionist exhibitions, but their art gradually won a degree of public acceptance and support. Their dealer, Durand-Ruel , played a major role in this as he kept their work before the public and arranged shows for them in London and New York. Although Sisley died in poverty in , Renoir had a great Salon success in By this time the methods of Impressionist painting, in a diluted form, had become commonplace in Salon art.
A number of identifiable techniques and working habits contributed to the innovative style of the Impressionists. Turner —the Impressionists were the first to use them all together, and with such consistency. These techniques include:. New technology played a role in the development of the style.
Impressionists took advantage of the mid-century introduction of premixed paints in tin tubes resembling modern toothpaste tubes , which allowed artists to work more spontaneously, both outdoors and indoors. Many vivid synthetic pigments became commercially available to artists for the first time during the 19th century. These included cobalt blue , viridian , cadmium yellow , and synthetic ultramarine blue , all of which were in use by the s, before Impressionism.
The Impressionists' progress toward a brighter style of painting was gradual. During the s, Monet and Renoir sometimes painted on canvases prepared with the traditional red-brown or grey ground. Prior to the Impressionists, other painters, notably such 17th-century Dutch painters as Jan Steen , had emphasized common subjects, but their methods of composition were traditional. They arranged their compositions so that the main subject commanded the viewer's attention.
The New Painting: Impressionism by C.S. Moffett
Turner , while an artist of the Romantic era , anticipated the style of impressionism with his artwork . The Impressionists relaxed the boundary between subject and background so that the effect of an Impressionist painting often resembles a snapshot, a part of a larger reality captured as if by chance. Photography inspired Impressionists to represent momentary action, not only in the fleeting lights of a landscape, but in the day-to-day lives of people. The development of Impressionism can be considered partly as a reaction by artists to the challenge presented by photography, which seemed to devalue the artist's skill in reproducing reality.
Both portrait and landscape paintings were deemed somewhat deficient and lacking in truth as photography "produced lifelike images much more efficiently and reliably". In spite of this, photography actually inspired artists to pursue other means of creative expression, and rather than compete with photography to emulate reality, artists focused "on the one thing they could inevitably do better than the photograph—by further developing into an art form its very subjectivity in the conception of the image, the very subjectivity that photography eliminated".

This allowed artists to depict subjectively what they saw with their "tacit imperatives of taste and conscience". Another major influence was Japanese ukiyo-e art prints Japonism. The art of these prints contributed significantly to the "snapshot" angles and unconventional compositions that became characteristic of Impressionism.

Edgar Degas was both an avid photographer and a collector of Japanese prints. The dancers are seemingly caught off guard in various awkward poses, leaving an expanse of empty floor space in the lower right quadrant.
He also captured his dancers in sculpture, such as the Little Dancer of Fourteen Years. Impressionists, in varying degrees, were looking for ways to depict visual experience and contemporary subjects. In particular, they were excluded from the imagery of the bourgeois social sphere of the boulevard, cafe, and dance hall.
Yet several women were able to find success during their lifetime, even though their careers were affected by personal circumstances — Bracquemond, for example, had a husband who was resentful of her work which caused her to give up painting. The critics of the time lumped these four together without regard to their personal styles, techniques, or subject matter.
One can understand that women have no originality of thought, and that literature and music have no feminine character; but surely women know how to observe, and what they see is quite different from that which men see, and the art which they put in their gestures, in their toilet, in the decoration of their environment is sufficient to give is the idea of an instinctive, of a peculiar genius which resides in each one of them.
While Impressionism legitimized the domestic social life as subject matter, of which women had intimate knowledge, it also tended to limit them to that subject matter. Portrayals of often-identifiable sitters in domestic settings which could offer commissions were dominant in the exhibitions. Cassatt, in particular, was aware of her placement of subjects: she kept her predominantly female figures from objectification and cliche; when they are not reading, they converse, sew, drink tea, and when they are inactive, they seem lost in thought. The women Impressionists, like their male counterparts, were striving for "truth," for new ways of seeing and new painting techniques; each artist had an individual painting style.
Cassatt's painting Young Girl at a Window is brighter in color but remains constrained by the canvas edge as she looks out the window. Despite their success in their ability to have a career and Impressionism's demise attributed to its allegedly feminine characteristics its sensuality, dependence on sensation, physicality, and fluidity the four women artists and other, lesser-known women Impressionists were largely omitted from art historical textbooks covering Impressionist artists until Tamar Garb's Women Impressionists published in The central figures in the development of Impressionism in France,   listed alphabetically, were:.
Pierre-Auguste Renoir , Girl with a Hoop , Le Grand Canal , , Claude Monet. Among the close associates of the Impressionists were several painters who adopted their methods to some degree. These include Jean-Louis Forain who participated in Impressionist exhibitions in , , and  and Giuseppe De Nittis , an Italian artist living in Paris who participated in the first Impressionist exhibit at the invitation of Degas, although the other Impressionists disparaged his work.
James Abbott McNeill Whistler was an American-born painter who played a part in Impressionism although he did not join the group and preferred grayed colours. Walter Sickert , an English artist, was initially a follower of Whistler, and later an important disciple of Degas; he did not exhibit with the Impressionists. In the artist and writer Wynford Dewhurst wrote the first important study of the French painters published in English, Impressionist Painting: its genesis and development , which did much to popularize Impressionism in Great Britain. By the early s, Impressionist methods were affecting, at least superficially, the art of the Salon.
The influence of the French Impressionists lasted long after most of them had died.
