GOODWILL ART GUIDE — Key Modern Art Styles

These French painters worked in Paris from the 1860s until, in some instances, the 1920s

These artists are seen as the earliest ‘avant garde’ group of painters whose work led from the Renaissance tradition of picturing the world through visual illusion, into the uncharted waters of modern art.  They broke new technical ground, but above all they established a key point — that a canvas is flat and this is what distinguishes painting from all the other arts. This guide explores their working practices and careers and helps to explain Impressionism's enduring popularity.
