Impressionism was developed by Claude Monet and other Paris-based artists from the early 1860s.
Impressionism vs. Post Impressionism
Post-Impressionists extended Impressionism while rejecting its limitations: they continued using vivid colors, often thick application of paint and real-life subject matter, but were more inclined to emphasize geometric forms, distort form for expressive effect, and use unnatural or arbitrary color.
The Value of French Impressionism
Impressionism lends itself to pencil drawing because the images rely on degree's of value, whereas Post Impressionism lends itself to pen/ink drawing because the images rely on shape and line.
