ABOUT MONET AND AMERICAN IMPRESSIONISM
Opening to the public June 27, Monet and American Impressionism will feature several Monet paintings and highlight twenty-five American artists who launched a new way of painting in response to the influence of French Impressionism. The exhibition, a collaboration between the Harn Museum of Art in Gainesville, the Telfair Museums in Savannah and the Hunter Museum, will present roughly fifty paintings and twenty prints dated between 1880-1920 by many of the leading figures in American Impressionism. These artists include: Mary Cassat, William Merritt Chase, Childe Hassam, Willard Metcalf, Theodore Robinson, john Henry Twatchtman and J. Alden Weir. These artists adapted the innovations of French Impressionism and ultimately paved the way to a uniquely American style of painting in the 19th century.
"This exhibition will give visitors the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to explore Monet's work alongside that of many of the most notable American artists of all time. We will explore the influences of French Impressionism and see how it was translated from a uniquely American perspective," said Nandini Makrandi, Chief Curator at the Hunter Museum.
