Late 19th Century

About

A general category for works created between 1870 and 1900. In Western Art, particularly in France, this period witnessed an incredible amount of artistic activity. Impressionism—one of the most important movements in the history of Modern Art—was arguably the most influential movement of the era, as it sought to capture the transient aspects of visual reality, especially light and color. Also significant during this time were the Post-Impressionist and Symbolist movements.
