"Party Time! (my rough translation)" by Renoir
We now find ourselves in Paris its 1876 and its party time. The rise of photography has caused a creative explosion for painters. Throw out realism, enter Impressionism, cameras cant do that. It’s now all about painting what you see and feel. Painters have to better photography and Impressionism is a great first expression of that. After 500 years of military portraits and biblical scenes, painters are now free to go crazy with their craft, and they do.
