Beth S. Gersh-Nesic says that what defines Impressionism is its emphasis on light. Through light, artists express quick changes in atmosphere, activity and texture.

The art form, which began in France during the late 19th century, concentrates on the immediate visual impression of a scene, and artists generally use primary colors and small strokes to replicate reflected light.

Gersh-Nesic, an art historian and the founder of the New York Arts Exchange, will be in Jackson Tuesday to give a presentation on the development of Impressionism in French art at the Mississippi Museum of Art.

Critics did not accept Impressionism during the time the art form was emerging, Gersh-Nesic
