So new was this style in 1874 that when, on 30 April, a group of young painters first showed their work in the Paris studio of the photographer Nadar, the public was shocked by what it saw. These landscapes and portraits, painted in pure, brilliant colors and with short, swift brushstrokes, flew in the face of tradition. Traditionalists coined the term Impressionists as an insult. These painters had no concern for grand historical subjects.

Rather, they sought to reproduce their immediate environment as it appeared to the eye, in all its atmospheric richness and untainted by traditional notions of art. Fleeting effects of color and the play of light on the objects are the hallmark of this style.
