Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
Today I have another wonderful impressionistic painting, but this time it's more from a modern artist of whom I couldn't find the name. The painting looks great and is an impression of a harbor in the sunset. Another nice scene as impressionists loved to paint ... we the day going to it's end, the light changes ... until sunset is at it's most beautiful.

There were also composers which were influenced by impressionism, composers like Debussy (1862-1918) for example or Ottorino Respighi (1879-1936) and Ravel (1875-1925).
Impressionism in music was a movement among various composers in Western classical music, mainly during the late 19th and early 20th centuries, whose music focuses on suggestion and atmosphere, "conveying the moods and emotions aroused by the subject rather than a detailed tone‐picture". “Impressionism” is a philosophical and aesthetic term borrowed from late 19th century French painting after Monet’s Impression, Sunrise. Musicians were labeled impressionists by analogy to the impressionist painters who use starkly contrasting colors, effect of light on an object blurry foreground and background, flattening perspective to make us focus our attention on the overall impression.
I hope you did enjoy this wonderful impressionistic music by Respighi and I hope it will inspire you to write new haiku too.
