Impression, soleil levant is a painting by Claude Monet first shown at what would become known as the «Exhibition of the Impressionists» in Paris. Painted in just a few hours, this fleeting image is surprising for unusual degree of freedom in its workmanship. Judging that it could not feasibly be taken for a view of Le Havre, he entitled the painting Impression. The term, originally used as painter's jargon, was on everyone's lips by the middle of the century. It described landscape painters' growing interest in rendering an atmosphere or impression, forgoing a detailed depiction of nature.
Since then the term has referred to the group formed by Monet and his friends. Today, Impression, Sunrise is a symbol of this movement. The original painting is currently preserved in the Marmottan Monet Museum inParis, theuniversal legacy museum of Claude Monet.Recognised as the start of the Impressionist movement, Impression, Sunrise was painted on November 13, 1872.
