Abstract:

"American Impressionism presents outstanding works by turn-of-the-century painters who often worked outdoors to capture brilliant effects of light and color. A generation of artists such as Childe Hassam, John Twachtman, Thomas and Maria Oakey Dewing, and William Merritt Chase studied abroad and absorbed advanced ideas that were revolutionizing painting in France." "Landscapes, domestic scenes, and elegant figure compositions by Theodore Robinson, Mary Cassatt, and Robert Reid show the freedom and sparkling qualities of the new impressionist style. Early in the twentieth century, Maurice Prendergast and Daniel Garber took impressionism in new, more modern directions."--Jacket.
