Details:One of the most enduring—yet complex and even contradictory—styles of art ever produced in this country, American Impressionism captured and held public attention for more than a century. The style was appreciated for its fairy tale views of an elegant American yesteryear, while at the same time carrying the imprimatur of Paris and reflecting the origins of modernism. Throughout the twentieth century, the American practitioners of the French-born style found themselves in both the good and bad graces of critics and the academy-praised for boldly adapting a new style and at the same time impugned for the style’s perceived indebtedness to foreign masters. Art critic Christian Brinton cautioned in 1916: “It must not be assumed that American Impressionism and French Impressionism are identical. The American painter accepted the spirit, not the letter of the new doctrine.” One hundred years later, Brinton’s words still ring true. Digging deeper into their origins, the exceptional works of American Impressionism assembled in this exhibition reveal a nuanced history of art interchange in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, far more complicated than the straightforward imitation of a foreign style.
