Different artists would in the long run work outside to outline out plants and landscapes, yet it was the Impressionists who put this method on the map, as they would finish a landscape painting on the area – commonly at one sitting.

In the wake of reading for a long time in Boudin's studio, Monet proceeded with his investigations at the Académie Suisse yet had to stop in 1860, for around two years in view of military help in Algeria.
