|Format:||Print Book 2000|
|Availability:||Available at 1 Library 1 of 1 copy|
An exploration of the work of American artists influenced by the light and colour of European Impressionism. As a generation of painters studied abroad and absorbed new approaches to light, palette and composition, their landscapes, cityscapes, figural paintings and still lifes began to exude their own distinct departures from academic styles. It presents works by James McNeill Whistler, Childe Hassam, John Twachtman, Maria Oakey Dewing, William Merritt Chase, Edmund Tarbell, Frank Bensen, Maurice Prendergast and others.
