Paris was a main place for Impressionistic artists to be inspired. Paris was unlike many other cities at the time. It was individualized and current at the time. It was quietly beautiful at provided many places for these artists to paint landscapes, still life’s, and living subjects alike.
We see how the camera and colour theory influenced their work as well as how the modern cityscape and social interactions consumed their creations. Even today Paris plays a role in Impressionism. Its museums house some of the greatest examples of period impressionist work on view, showing that nearly two centuries later Paris is still at the heart of Impressionism.
During the 1860s under the reign of Napoleon III in France, the city of Paris became one of the most modern in the world due to the extensive redesigning by Baron Georges Eugene Haussmann.

The founders of the Impressionistic society were animated by the will to break away from the traditional style of art. The influence was great out of France, especially in Germany, Liebermann, Corinth, and in Belgium. Impressionists were largely responsible for a major shift in the development of western art, influencing other artists who admired their work.

Considering the fact that I am severely directionally challenged, this saved me copious amounts of time (I spend more time trying to figure out where I am in the museum than I do actually enjoying the artwork).
