Impressionism was an art style popular in Europe in the late 1800s, following the Realism movement from France in the 1840s. Impressionism seeks to capture the essence of a scene through external means like light and layered color. Expressionism out of Germany followed Impressionism but focused on the artist's subjective experience of a scene, through use of vibrant color and distorted perspective. These 16 card designs contrast the two styles through showing similar subjects (streets, portraits, hills) with very different artistic rendering: "inside" for the subjective experience and "out" for the external light. Cards are printed with archival inks on heavy cardstock paper and include matching envelopes, and purchase options include all 16 designs, the first half, and the second half.
