    The French have many things to be proud of, including fine wine, delicious world-famous cuisine, and famous French musicians and artists that have changed the way the world views art and all things beautiful.

    The Impressionism movement in painting took place during the mid to late 1800s and was partially due to the advent of photography. Painters were ready to break away from creating only realistic pieces and wanted to start capturing what a camera could not; the colorful details of the image.

    When the famous painter Edouard Manet was refused a spot in a prestigious gallery for his non-traditional art, a group of experimental French painters led a revolt against the established art salons. They created playful and artistic paintings to evoke the energy of the image without replicating the actual picture. Though initially dismissed as trivial works by critics, the movement grew to what is now considered an important period in art history. There are many famous French Impressionist works in prestigious museums around the world.
