Impressionism was a French 19th century art movement, which made waves in the art world at the time, for it marked a huge shift from the traditions in European painting. Impressionists used science to look into colour physics, with the view to archive a more accurate representation of colour and tone. Before impressionism, art was all about the subject matter being painted, the Impressionists aimed to emphasise the artist’s perception of the subject matter. Some of the greatest impressionist artists were Edouard Manet, Camille Pissaro, Edgar Degas, Alfred Sisley, Claude Monet, Berthe Morisot and Pierre Auguste Renoir.
