These artists exhibited their work in the Salon and the World Exposition in Paris, three of them showing their paintings alongside Pissaro, Degas, Renoir, and Monet in the first Impresionist exhibitions in the early 1870s.  They painted their family, children, friends, lovers, along with scenes of gardens, forests, and landscapes.  Take a journey through the artistry and lives of some of the movers and shakers of the Impressionist movement.
