The First Exhibition of Impressionists in Paris
Impressionism is an art movement that was introduced in the 19th century. The name was inspired from the title of Claude Monet’s work, Impression, soleil levant (Impression, sunrise). Later on, a group of artists started with this kind of art and were criticized not kindly for it. So, an Impressionist exhibition was formed and took place from April 15 to May 15, 1874, and was led by the French artists Claude Monet, Edgar Degas, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Camille Pissarro and Berthe Morisot, they called themselves the Anonymous Society of Painters, Sculptors, Engravers, etc.
