However, Monet varied his work much more than Degas did. The evolution of Monet’s artistic style was extreme. Although both artists are of the Impressionist Movement, Degas and Monet started on very contrary bases in their approach to their production of painting and such. However, Monet influenced Degas into adapting his art to fit it into the Impressionist stereotype. Degas’ influence over Monet was minimal to non-existent putting aside his decision to add other colours to his palette.
Impressionism was a movement that occurred in both art and poetry. It was a time in which the people broke from the traditional standards or styles. They wanted to bring new ways of expressing their ideas to their societies. These ideas were seen through subjects of interest, such as art and poetry. Claude Monet’s Woman with a Parasol: Madame Monet and Her Son and William Butler Yeats’s “The Wild Swans at Coole” both characterize important aspects of the Impressionist Age.
It is clear that you can see the exaggerations in this painting when you look at the stars. It was painted during a time of mental insanity leading the artist to have a unique use of self expression and a shifted reality to create an abstract painting. The painting pulls more meaning and speculation because there is more then just a passive experience of looking at a painted landscape. Shown plainly is a landscape, using long brushstrokes that you can make out just like the one on the Sunrise. It also uses intense colors of blue, yellow, and orange
The lack of use in the outline and detail is a traditional impressionist technique. Modernism represents a new start amongst artist in wanting to create whatever they want. This being of a new era that changed tradition that include religious, political, and society that creates new ideas. This movement appeared in France during the late 19th century as a rebellion against realism. Artist embraced society with their new ideas of social life and art.
These paintings also held different obsessions in their time. The Romantic period sought to project passion and heroics, and the Impressionist movement sought to project what was felt in the general moment the painting was created. These two works differentiate in the application of paint as well as modulation of color, but there are similarities with effects of light and limited detail. Because of the similarities found in light and detail, the painting technique used by these artists is easy to compare; however, the Romantic period's projection of passion compared to the Impressionist's movement projection of "immediate sensory perception" made them dissimilar (SNHU).

The text’s authors explains the “…aim was to replace Renaissance ideals with Modernist principles.” (cite) Renaissance ideals embraced humanism. In the Renaissance era, the point of view for humanism was individuals are enhanced through study and practice of literature, philosophy, music and arts. However, Modernist principles replaced renaissance ideals by being more expressive through various art forms. Vincent Van Gogh, a Dutch painter, expressed modernism through his unpredictable behaviors. One of Van Gogh’s most famous art works in history, The Starry Night, greatly articulated Van Gogh’s inner chaos.
Indeed, its life seems as fleeting as the light effects it sought to capture.” (Samu 2000) Impressionists used everyday scenes for their subjects in an attempt to capture reality.

In a time when artistic freedom was severely limited, the French Impressionists tirelessly explored new artistic frontiers despite hostile encounters with the public, ultimately redefining the world’s perspective on art. In the mid- to late 1800s, a group of artists challenged the conventions that governed artistic expression. These artists, later known as the Impressionists, were initially seen as vulgar and rebellious. It took years for the public and artistic community to accept them and their work. They set up their canvases outside, using wide brush strokes and vibrant colors as they focused on expression over realism.
Courbet was an individualist himself. His paintings focused on the harshness in life, and by doing this he challenged the ideas of existing academic art. The ideas of individualism transitioned through romanticism and became even more prominent during the realism art period. “The key to Romanticism according to Baudelaire, was not the subject matter or even truth itself, but feeling that you should listen to that inner voice, and that alone would give art it’s merit” (Educational Broadcasting Corporation [DVD], 1989, 49:07).

Dali used what he described as "hand-painted colour photography" (Mariorenzi, 2005) to depict with a hallucinatory effect the transformation of Narcissus.
