Rejecting conventions they considered formulaic and rigid, such artists as Claude Monet, Auguste Renoir, and Camille Pissarro broke with the mid-nineteenth century French art world both in what they chose to paint (scenes from everyday life) and the manner in which they painted it (with loose, open brushwork). In freeing themselves to explore new forms of expression, these artists and their colleagues, later known as impressionists, took the first steps on the road to modern art.
The twelve works reproduced here are in the collection of the National Gallery of Art.
