Impressionists add emotion and symbolic meaning to their art. Their works often contain bold, unrealistic colors and expressive brushstrokes.
Their art tends to have brilliant colors that almost shimmer in their intensity.
Impressionist artists try to capture an immediate impression of what the eye sees at a single glance, rather than what the viewer knows or feels about the work.
