"John Twachtman: An American Impressionist"
1999-06-06 until 1999-09-05
Cincinnati Art Museum
Cincinnati, OH, USA United States of America

Celebrate the life and work of one of Cincinnati’s best-known artists and America’s most important Impressionists with the United States premier of John Twachtman: An American Impressionist, the first retrospective exhibition of Twachtman’s work in over 30 years. This exhibition features more than 50 paintings and pastels detailing the artist’s career and revealing how Twachtman’s style evolved as he responded to the artistic issues of his time.

Born in 1853 in Cincinnati to German immigrants, John Twachtman received early artistic training in his hometown. In 1875, Frank Duveneck, noted Cincinnati artist, friend and teacher, invited the young artist to accompany him to Munich. Twachtman readily adopted the characteristic dark palette and rapid, open brushwork of his Munich colleagues. After refining his painting skills on a trip to Venice in 1877, he returned to the United States and developed a forceful, realistic manner that captured the energy of city life in New York and Cincinnati. Six years later, Twachtman departed for Paris to study and improve his skills. In the late 1880s, he returned to the United States and became fully identified with the American Impressionist movement.

John Twachtman: An American Impressionist was organized by the High Museum of Art in Atlanta with generous support from The Henry Luce Foundation. The exhibition is presented locally by The Otto M. Budig Family Foundation.
