Kind of a predictable choice, maybe. But my class has been studying impressionism for only the past few weeks.

The use of color in this painting won me over. It's so vivid.

This one:



Is at the Getty Museum in LA. It's absolutely mesmerizing in person. From across the room it looks like it's glowing in morning light. I could stare at it for hours.

I'm not an art person. Can I list my favorite music from the impressionist period instead?

I think Monet is one of the most overrated artists. Certainly the most overrated impressionist.

Hence, I will not be posting a favourite pic.

Debussy - Clair de Lune (orchestral version is my preferred method of hearing it)
Debussy - Pour le Piano

I don't actually know all that many.

Clair de Lune was the first piece I ever played in any kind of music competition (I think). Still have a soft spot for it. Also really love the Sunken Cathedral from his Preludes. My favorite impressionistic piano piece, though, is Ravel's Gaspard de la Nuit.
