On April 15th 1874 in a photographer’s studio at 35 boulevard des Capucines the first Impressionist exhibition was presented.
I wrote the details of the importance and the consequences of that event in a post in which I explained what Impressionism is.

That exhibition was only the beginning for some young artists who painted in a different way from the past.
For centuries artists painted “dal vero” and then finished their works inside their studio. On the contrary, the Impressionists painted in the open air, “en plein air”.

Who are the impressionist painters?
In this post their names and their main works.

You’ll find the list of the artists who joined the first exhibition in the post in which I told you the beginning of the Impressionists, but over time other artists joined this group, whereas others followed a different artistic journey.
Here then who the Impressionists are.
