The Impressionist movement began in Europe, where artists rejected the traditional, academic rules of art in favor of painting plein air, using small dabs of paint and marking visible brushstrokes to capture fleeting instants of time. When American artists traveled abroad, they learned this new method and brought it back home with them, teaching the next generation of American artists. While this technique was initially rejected, it is now perhaps the most beloved style of painting.
Sullivan Goss is located on 7 E. Anapamu St. and is open everyday from 10 a.m–5:30 p.m. For more information, please click here or call 805/730-1460.
