From the Paper:

"From the late 1860s to the late 1880s a French art movement flourished. Derived from Monet's painting Impression, this worldwide movement was called Impressionism. Impressionists painted mainly of modern-day subjects in the open air. They used a lot of bright colored paints (little drawing) and aimed to capture the effects of light. Two great American artists of this time were Thomas Eakins and Mary Cassatt. Thomas Eakins was born on July 25, 1844 in Philadelphia. His father was a writer from which he inherited a lot of talent. He also learned to love the outdoors from his father and his childhood. He was very outgoing and did exceptionally well in school. Eakins especially loved science and math, which he enjoyed using later in his career."
