A founding member of the Ten American Painters and an important teacher at the Art Students League, Twachtman combined European and American influences to create his own highly individual artistic style. Throughout his career, Twachtman won the approval of his fellow artists by challenging artistic conventions and experimenting with innovative subject matter. This catalogue is the first in-depth assessment of Twachtman's career. In an essay based on fresh research, Lisa N. Peters provides the definitive account of Twachtman's life as an artist. With an eye for the critical reception of his work, Peters constructs a narrative of Twachtman's artistic development, from his student days in Munich to his early death in Gloucester, Massachusetts. Accompanying the traveling exhibition organized by the High Museum of Art, this fully illustrated catalogue elegantly reveals the subtle delicacy of Twachtman's oeuvre."--Jacket.
