American Impressionism: A New Vision

Exhibit 2014 in Giverny France

Giverny Museum of Impressionisms

From March 28th through June 29th, 2014

Giverny was not only the village of Claude Monet.

It was also a  lively colony of mostly American artists
who travelled to France  at the end of the 19th century
to take in the newest developments in art,
especially impressionism. 

The exhibit organised at the Musee des Impressionnismes Giverny
offers a unique display of  80 paintings
signed by American  impressionists such as
Mary Cassatt, John Singer Sargent,  James Mc Neill Whistler,
who spent a long time in France,
belonged to the impressionist group
and participated in the creation
of this new aesthetic.

Other American artists like Chase, Hassam and Tarbell,
inspired by the new way of rendering light effects
took the impressionist technics back home
to feature seascapes or countryside in bright colors.

Beside landscapes painted in the open air,
American impressionism also focuses on modern topics
such as leisure and pleasure of well-off people:
picnics, walks, etc,
giving the illusion of an ideal world.
