Impressionist paintings often include short, broken brush strokes of pure, untinted and unmixed colors to give an appearance of spontaneity and vibrancy. Surfaces of the paintings tend to be highly textured with thick paint and the compositions place emphasis on an overall effect verses detail. Well known impressionist Claude Monet performed a significant role in this 19th century art movement.
