Long live impressionism

Doing a little reading on this radical change in painting and have found some scholars positing a correlation between the development of photographer in the late 1860’s and the changes that took place in French painting.  Probably not a new idea in the art history or criticism arenas but it’s new information to me and thrills me to see how the two ways of visual representation have influenced each other.

And it continues today…..
