Les Impressionistes

From the 13th of October to the 20th of January, le Musée des Beaux Arts in Montreal is host to one of the most large and richly diverse collection of impressionist art. 

There are 74 paintings where one can get lost in for hours varying from feminine beauty, to middle eastern mystique, to landscape and ocean artwork, to still lifes. It’s not to be missed if you love art and are in the city during that time. 

Impressionism originated from the 19th century and was a movement started by a group of Paris based artists. Though it was an unconventional style, challenging what was considered “traditional” art work, it rose to fame nearing the late 19th century. One would describe impressionist art as an immediate juxtaposition of bright colors in effect to represent the subtle changes of objects with light. The brush strokes are often short and painted in a manner to represent the movement and shape of the imagery and what is portrayed. The attention to detail is less focused and the viewer must concentrate solely on the impression and mood the imagery gives.
