Why Impressionism?

There are reasons Impressionism remains one of the best-loved styles in all the history of art. Shows of Impressionist paintings draw crowds of visitors who linger to soak up every joyous brushstroke.

Impressionist paintings make us feel good. We linger willingly, and lose ourselves in the contemplation of fleeting effects of light and vibrant, sparkling color. Impressionism allows us to remember and notice that, in spite of everything, the world has much in it of joy, hope, and possibility - and is really still that beautiful.
