Artful Insight–American Impressionists

Jul 10, 2017

Drawing from the influence of European Impressionism, many American artists applied this modern style of painting, characterized by loose brushwork and vivid colors, to the American landscape. During this Artful Insight, we’ll discuss and compare four major artists of the American Impressionist movement: John Twachtman, Childe Hassam, John F. Carlson, and Edward Henry Potthast. We’ll discover how these artists achieved their unique effects by examining their Western landscapes in the Museum’s Collection.
