Impression, sunrise (1872), by Claude Monet. This painting gave rise to the name of Impressionism. It shows the port of Le Havre in the morning, and focuses on accurately reproducing the impression and the mood, rather than the shape of individual objects. When exhibited for the first time, it was criticized for being “only a sketch”, with some people complaining that they were unable to recognize what was shown.
