American Impressionism - Seeing the Light

March 7, 2019 at 2:00pm

Impressionism emerged from France and influenced many artists in Europe and America – but in America impressionism in painting took on a life of its own. America produced a number of impressionist painters such as John Singer Sargent, Mary Cassatt and Childe Hassam, but others remained obscure. Turn of the century America was a golden age in our history and the creation of wealth, due to industrialization, which played an important part in the American appetite for Art.
