The Impressionist surface perceptions in paint( Visual )

When painting began to concern itself more with the perception of reality than verisimilitude, Impressionism was born.

These methods are highlighted in Monet's Bathing at La Grenouillere, Pissarro's Festival at l'Hermitage and The Avenue in Sydenham, and Cezanne's The Grounds of the Chateau Noir. Produced by the Open University
