American Impressionism: Echoes of the Revolution

American impressionism, one of the most persistent, but complex and even controversial styles of art ever created in this country, has captured and held public attention for over a century.

The exhibition seeks to more fully explore the redefinition of American impressionism as a practice less focused on imitating the French style than on creating an equally independent movement in this country. A key concern is the late appearance of impressionism in America. While French impressionism burst onto the Paris scene in 1874, style arrived in the United States after a decade of discussion and debate here and abroad.
