Impressionism is one of the areas of painting that appeared in France at the end of the 19th century. The word “impressionism” comes from the French word "impression". The painters opposed the traditions of classicism and realism. They tried to show beauty and convey emotion from a particular moment.

Sometimes, they squeeze paint from a tube directly onto the canvas and use small strokes instead of the outlines of the depicted objects.
