Impressionism, 1860–1900s

The artists known as the Impressionists focused on scenes of modern life, often presented from unusual vantage points. They used visible brushstrokes in bright colors to emphasize the depiction of light and its movement across surfaces. The Nelson-Atkins collection of Impressionism works includes paintings by Eugène Boudin, Gustave Caillebotte, Edgar Degas, Jean-Baptiste-Armand Guillaumin, Léon-Augustin Lhermitte, Claude Monet, Berthe Morisot, Camille Pissarro, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, and Alfred Sisley.
