When the artists who became known as the Impressionists first presented their work in 1874, contemporaries perceived their innovative working methods and unconventional subject matter as a radical departure from accepted ways of art-making. This selection of paintings and drawings by artists including Paul Cézanne, Camille Pissarro, Berthe Morisot, Pierre-Auguste Renoir and Mary Cassatt highlights the Impressionists’ creative use of process and materials to represent contemporary subjects in a way that had never been done before.
