Manet (1832-1883) is one of the most important French painters of the second half of the 19th century. Although he was one of the forerunners of the impressionists, his style remained independent. He met frequently with the founders of impressionism, who considered him as a great role model. After 1871 he is stimulated by contact with Claude Monet to the plein-air painting. In the year that followed, his paintings was characterize lighter, much vibrant colours and lighter, more sketchy brushwork.
For many years, Petra Waszak interprets forms and symbols of art history with unique sensitivity in fashion accessories. With much subtlety she combines different styles and techniques and creates such a special voltage.

The artist collaborated with the most important fashion houses such as Dior, Chanel and Gucci. Her extraordinary creations will find itself among other things in the shops of great world museums such as the Musée du Louvre in Paris, the British Museum in London or the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. Her creations are worn by many actors, politicians and celebrities, such as Liza Minelli and Angela Merkel.

The style of Impressionism that emerged in French painting in 1870 owes its name to the Claude Monet's landscape 'Impression, Soleil Levant'. After initial refusal it began a true triumphant advance.

Such painters as Claude Monet, Edgar Degas, Edouard Manet, Auguste Renoir and others created motifs from everyday life, urban and landscape scenes in a bright, natural light.

Impressionism can be seen as a reaction to the academic painting. The emphasis was not on content with its strict rules of painting structure, but on the object as it appears at any given moment, in an often random cut out. The reality was seen in its whole color variety in natural lighting. The studio painting was replaced by the open-air painting.

The brightening of the palette and the dissolution of firm contours was accompanied by a new way of handling with color. Often, the colors were no longer mixed on the palette but side by side on the canvas so that the final impression lies in the eye of the beholder with a certain distance. In "Pointillism", (with such painters as Georges Seurat or Paul Signac) this principle was carried to the extreme.

Outside France, Impressionism was taken up by such painters as Max Slevogt, Max Liebermann and Lovis Corinth in Germany, and by James A. M. Whistler in the United States.

In sculpture, the impressionism expressed itself only conditionally. In the works of Auguste Rodin, who is considered one of the main representatives, you can see a resolution of the surfaces in which the play of light and shadow is included in the artistic expression. Degas and Renoir created sculptures as well.
