IMPRESSIONIST ARTISTS PAINTED IN THE OPEN AIR, TRAVELLING AND PAINTING FROM NATURE.
Breaking free from the rigidity of the Salon, their painting came out of every day life, finding wonderment in the ordinary.
Although each artist had their own technique, what they had in common was their attitude to light and the play of light and colours.
They used bright, lively, singing colours. They rarely used black and grey.
Renoir said: “One morning one of us ran out of black. That was the beginning of the Impressionist movement.”
