American Impressionism: Treasures from the Daywood Collection embodies the evocative, timeless beauty of late 19th and early 20th century American art. The exhibition showcases must-see masterworks by American painters including Robert Henri, George Inness, George Luks, John Sloan, John Twachtman, and J. Alden Weir. Drawn from the acclaimed collection of the Huntington Museum of Art in West Virginia the exhibition explores a transformative time in American art when painters abandoned the rigors of academic styles and subjects. Inspired by their European counterparts, they turned to intimate scenes of the cultivated countryside and figure studies of friends and neighbors that reflected the more modern influences of Impressionism and Post-Impressionism.
The exhibition is on view at the Lightner Museum from April 8, 2021-July 5, 2021.
Exhibition organized by the Huntington Museum of Art and toured by International Arts & Artists, Washington, DC
