Next Up: Artful Insight on American Impressionists on July 6th.
Drawing from the influence of European Impressionism, many American artists applied this modern style of painting, characterized by loose brushwork and vivid colors, back in America. During this Artful Insight, we’ll discuss and compare three major artists of the American Impressionist movement: John Twachtman, Childe Hassam, and John F. Carlson.
