In the latter part of the nineteenth century, Claude Monet (French, 18401926) was one of a daring group of French painters who turned away from academic tradition and developed a fresh, spontaneous style devoted to the pursuit of light and its fleeting effects on sky, water, and land. Painted in 1874, the year of the groups first exhibition in Paris, Monets Sailboats on the Seine at Petit-Gennevilliers reflects the emergence of the artists mature style. His agile brushwork was superbly suited to the evanescent interplay of sunlight and water. The groupwhose Impressionists moniker was inspired by critical attention directed at another of Monets paintings, Impressionism: Sunrisedeftly captured scenes of everyday life in flickering brushstrokes, bold colors, and soft atmospheric effects. Water and the reflections of landscapes would become an obsession for Monet, and ouard Manet, one of his contemporaries, would speak admiringly of him as the Raphael of water.

Although classically trained at the ole des Beaux-Arts in Paris, Henri Matisse (18691954) quickly rejected traditional illusionistic representation in favor of flat areas of vivid color and uneven smears of paint in his portraits, landscapes, and still lifes.
