Overview

Impressionism was one of the most important artistic movements of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Developed primarily in France, impressionism encouraged painters to capture the"impression" of light and shadow, generally by using feathery dabs of color rather than outlining shapes on the canvas. Famous artists associated with this school include Claude Monet, Edgar Degas, and Paul CÈzanne.

Impressionists for Kids contains eleven reproductions of famous works from this influential school, including Edgar Degasís Green Dancer and Georges Pierre Seuratís Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte , in a toddler-friendly board-book format.
