      Degas, too, painted informal subjects, such as women bathing and dancers stretching. Pissarro studied under Fritz Melbye, spending the first 15 years of his career painting rural landscapes, Impressionists and impressionism book scenes and ports all of which make subject returns throughout his later career. This dividing up of the canvas into individual sections of complementary and contrasting colors led to the name "divisionism", a term coined by Signac. It could be said that Monet reinvented the possibilities of color. Incorporation of political and social ideas, especially anarchism, started showing prominence. These Impressionist paintings transmit not only a sense of liberation in style, but a true enjoyment of life, their most typical subjects being breakfasts, picnics, promenades and boating trips, and scenes of nature in different moods and in different seasons.

      Along with Monet, it was Pissarro and Sisley who were perhaps the most faithful to Impressionism. Organized by Degas, the first of these Impressionist exhibitions took place in and was vilified by the critics and the public alike. Mythology, biblical scenes and Impressionists and impressionism book events that had dominated the revered "history" painting of their era were replaced by subjects of contemporary life, such as cafes and street life in Paris, suburban and rural leisure life outside of Paris, dancers and singers and workmen. Manet did not use the bright colors of the impressionists. Most unusual of all was the artists' painting technique. This extremely theoretical technique, called pointillism, was adopted by a number of contemporary painters and formed the basis of the style of painting known as Neo-Impressionism.

      However these radicals were often criticized for depicting a peaceful and thoughtful approach to social revolution, combining science and moral harmony. Turner skillfully portrayed light and atmosphere. When viewed from a slight distance, the strokes of color seemed to merge, forming a complete image. These influences can best be seen in the career of Claude Monetthe leading member of the group.
