Ho many people like Impressionist art? Who is your favorite artist? My two favorites are Mary Cassatt, and Edouard Manet. I have a print of the Railway above my mantel.

Yes, i like impressionists very much, and post-impressionists also. My father taught me to love them, in my early teens. My favorite impressionists are Monet, Degas, Pissarro and Renoir.

They are all so talented. It was a great period of art, and so many wonderful paintings came out of it.

My favorite is Monet as you can probably tell by my username. Everything he did I love except I'm not too crazy about the haystacks for some reason. I have been to Giverny and it was wonderful. My all time favorite painting is by Singer Sargent. Its Carnation Lily Lily Rose. I saw it for the first time in the Tate museum in London and I just kept coming back to it. I now have a large print in my livingroom.

please read my article I wrote about Claude Monet, why he is the best master of Impressionism. I think you will enjoy it. Read it here:

I think that impressionist art is the best kind of art.Impressionist artists paint directly without the need to do preliminary drawings.This style of art makes art seem like magic.My favorite impressionist artist is Manet.

Mary Cassatt, Monet, and Degas as well. such an era that was... I think it was difficult for the impressionists during their time, they were scorned upon like renegades, but their art is appealing to us! it is so dreamy.

I really love Claude Monet. I especially like his 'Artist's Garden at Giverny' and 'Irises.' However, my very favorite artist (who is not an impressionist, sorry!) is Georgia O'Keeffe. I absolutely love her work. I have two of her prints in my home.

I like impressionist art too. Mary Cassatt is also one of my favorites although I don't see her art around so much. I like many of her paintings with the theme of mother and child.

I like Impressionism a lot, but am more partial to realism. I really like Cezanne and he may be my favorite among the many impressionist artist. I also like the works of Monet and Van Gogh

This is one of my favorite paintings. I love to visit museums and could spend an entire day walking around admiring the art work. I wish there were museums closer to where we live.

I LOVE Impressionism. It's too hard to me to choose one artist among the Impressionists. Me too i like Mary Cassatt, I love pictures as "Maternal kiss", "A mandolin player", "Young woman sewing in the garden" and so on. Her picture is very delicate, she paints children in a wonderful way. And Berthe Morisot? Another great female Impressionist. But in truth I love every Impressionist, Degas, Monet, Manet, Sisley, Renoir, Pissarro, and so on. Sorry, but I can't tell you who's my favourite, I love them all.
