Impressionism in Art
I really enjoyed looking at the artwork Ms. Quinet displayed in class yesterday, specifically the impressionists' paintings. One significant detail of Impressionism is that it represents a moment in time. Often, paintings look as if they're in motion. It is similar to photography in the sense that at any moment, the scene could change. I thought the usage of light and contrast were interesting as well. Also, nature was vividly depicted in several of the pieces we looked at. I think all these aspects really contribute to the uniqueness of Impressionism.
