British Impressionism

British Impressionism

by KennethMcConkey (Author)


British Impressionism (1880-1910) was a direct and spontaneous period of British art, when artists were concerned with painting the effects of light. This study explores the work of such influential artists as Clausen, Sickert, Sargent and Steer and explains how they were influenced by French Impressionists and Naturalists. Responding directly to the scene before them, and depicting urban and rural scenes - the gamut of social life from fashionable tennis parties to goose-girls tending their flocks - these artists adapted their techniques according to their geographical situation and differing lighting. Kenneth McConkey has written extensively about late Victorian and Edwardian painting.
