ABSTRACT
This article offers a look at the history of plein air painting. The origin of this painting style can be traced to 17th- and 18th-century Rome, Italy. Particular focus is given to the purpose of the plein air movement. Artists were encouraged to join the movement following the advent of portable plein air materials. Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot was one of the greatest landscape artists who emerged during this period. The Barbizon School movement was inspired by the artist's fidelity to nature and interest in atmospheric effects.
