Impressionists by the Water, Keepsake Boxed Note Cards

About the Style

Impressionism is a 19th-century art movement characterized by the use of unbridled brushstrokes and color, rather than light and shadow, to create form. The impressionists rejected the strict techniques and conservative themes preferred by the Académie des Beaux-Arts, instead striving to capture the endless variations of light and atmosphere found in nature through plein-air landscape painting and intimate domestic scenes. Their works are defined by their vivacity and emphasis on the ephemeral beauty in nature and everyday life.

The lovely Impressionists by the Water note card set reproduces details that are the result of four different painters working on the shore: a woman in white gazing over the ocean in Childe Hassam's The South Ledges, Appledore (1913); bathers frolicking on the beach in The Captain's Pier by William Glackens; the red boats in Monet's Argenteuil (1875); and figures on the beach with red-roofed houses and hills in the background in a Renoir painting. The sturdy decorative box holds cards and envelopes neatly, and when the cards have been sent, it's great for storing all sorts of little things—from extra buttons to seashells.
