Paris, In The Footsteps Of

The Impressionists

Paris was the center of the Impressionist art movement in the mid-19th century. Artists like Monet, Manet, Renoir, van Gogh... and others rejected the traditional and conventional academic style of painting

While rejected by the Academic institutions of the time for being considered as degenerate art, these artists eventually became popular and today their paintings are greatly admired in museums and exhibitions around the world.
