French art movement of the late 19th century that, inspired by scientific knowledges about the physical compositions of colours, tried to render them in an exact as possible way. To this purpose the impressionists went into nature (plein-air-painting), to catch their subjects as they were. The surrounding light conditions let contours blur and the visual impression prevails (Atomization of the objective world).
Motifs from the field of sporting activity, mostly motorsport, tennis, basketball und boxing. Most of the pictures from this subject area are photographs. The representation of dynamic movements improve the impression of reality. We find here not only representations of sporting performance but also portraits, especially of charismatic personalities as the US-American Box Champion Mohammed Ali.
