* Joan Mitchell, 66, an American painter whose canvases were a synthesis of expressionism and impressionism, died Friday in Paris, where she had lived off-and-on since 1955. The cause was not announced. Some critics thought she reinvented % 5/8 impressionism, adding a touch of American expressionism. Her works were regularly displayed in Paris and New York. In 1989, she received France's prestigious National Grand Prize for Painting.* Ted Thomas, 88, a Broadway and Hollywood producer, died of a heart attack Wednesday at his home in Van Nuys, Calif.

Impressionism wasn't born in a vacuum. It didn't light up like an electric bulb over the heads of Monet and his colleagues one summer afternoon.Instead, over a considerable period there were many people who set the stage for movement impressionism, including Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot (1796-1875).As a companion to its current "Monet" exhibit, the Baltimore Museum of Art has mounted a highly rewarding small show of "Corot: Prelude to Impressionism," which leaves a few impressions of its own.First impression: To look at these Corots is to know that impressionism came from something, but that's not to say Corot was an impressionist.
