These changes opened the way for new breaks in the history of art and deserved the title of the pioneer of modern art. It is necessary to look at the innovations brought about by art of impressionism. These innovations can be listed as follows: Instead of noble subjects, ordinary subjects were chosen, light was scientifically examined, colors were given side by side, and workshops were preferred instead of open air. To seize the moment fast works were provided therefore canvas sizes were kept small. Instead of a linear perspective, the air perspective with colors was preferred. Impressionism is the cafes, rivers, railway stations, streets and all other public spaces that urbanization offers to the community. In portraits, the subjects are ordinary people. All impressionist issues are up to date. For this reason, impressionism is the most important stage of modern art by destroying the classical academic tradition.
