Impressionism is undoubtedly the most popular and beloved by the public pictorial trend in the art of the second half of the XIX century. Born on French soil, impressionism affected almost all countries of the world. But perhaps the greatest influence he had on Spanish artists. They preferred a bright, juicy palette to convey the beauty of southern nature - colorful shadows of sweeping trees, white glare of solar reflexes and modulations of sea water. Spanish impressionism grows out of the classical pictorial heritage, it feels connected with the traditions of the XVII century art in the face of Velázquez and the art of the XVIII century in the face of Goya.
