Years before the influential Paris-based art movement Impressionism began, a similar style of painting capturing colorful impressions existed in Italy, according to a new exhibit. The show at Paris’ Musée de l’Orangerie displays works from 1860s Florence with vivid, dappled light — in a strikingly similar way to famed painters like Claude Monet from the 1870s. The movement was called “Macchiaioli,” after the Italian for “stain,” to evoke splashes of light in the painting. The Macchiaioli: The Italian Impressionists? runs through July 22.
