    • Some review: Impressionism was influenced by Realism: • scenes of contemporary life • personal views and subjects; art for art’s sake • avant garde attitude; the artist is separate from the mainstream Impressionism was mainly concerned with: • the play of light on surfaces • intensity of colour (canvases primed white; no black used) • informal compositions • En Plein Aire-French expression which means "in the open air," and is particularly used to describe the act of painting outdoors.
