What art critic coined the term "impressionism"?

Answer:

LOUIS LEROY

Louis Leroy, an art critic for the French newspaper Le Charivari, coined the term "impressionists" to satirize the artists involved in an 1874 art show entitled The Exhibition of Impressionists. In his review, he wrote: "Impression I was certain of it. I was just telling myself that, since I was impressed, there had to be some impression in it -- and what freedom, what ease of workmanship! A preliminary drawing for a wallpaper pattern is more finished than this seascape." The term was subsequently adopted by the artists themselves and has become the name of one of the most influential movements in the history of art.
