Impressionism


Impressionism is an art form that was born in the 19th century and is linked to painting, since those who used it were a bit bold, since what they told was not what it really was, but the impression that light made on the object what the Impressionists captured in their works.

France was the cradle so to speak that developed this art that later spread around all of Europe. Light being the main protagonist, leaving aside the identity of the objects that are portrayed. Another characteristic of this artistic trend is the use of primary colors, which were used without mixing, dark colors being the least used.

The impressionist painters did their work without the intention of hiding each of the brushstrokes made, causing everything to be seen as unitary. Various names have walked through this type of art, among which Edgar Degas, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, among others, stand out. Although each one placed their different touch but always being within the characteristics of impressionism.

There is also impressionist music, which began in France at the end of the 19th century. In this genre there were many important musicians such as Maurice Ravel, Claude Debussy, among others. Impressionist music was counted with seven scales but they gradually disappeared with the birth of the musical baroque.

The composers of this genre sought to break the stigmas that society had regarding it, so they added spontaneity and sounds of nature to adorn it.
