The Impressionist Journey
Impressionism was developed by Claude Monet and other Paris-based artists from the early 1860s. Instead of painting in a studio, the Impressionists found that they could capture the momentary and transient effects of sunlight by working quickly, in front of their subjects, in the open air rather than in a studio.

Woman with a Parasol by Claude Monet from 1875
The work is a genre painting of an everyday family scene, not a formal portrait.
The painting is one of Monet’s most recognisable and revered works and of impressionism as a whole.
The Poppy Field by Claude Monet painted in 1873
This beautifully depicted summer’s day is captured in all its glory with the vibrant poppies complementing the wispy clouds in a clear blue sky. Two separate colour zones are established, one dominated by red, the other by a bluish-green.
Dancers in Blue by Edgar Degas painted in 1890
Edgar Degas was a French artist famous for his pastel drawings and oil paintings of ballerinas. Dancers in Blue is one of the only paintings by Degas where the artist opted for cool tones in order to depict the women.
