"American Impressionists Abroad and at Home:
Paintings from the Collection of The Metropolitan Museum of Art"

2001-01-27 until 2001-04-22
San Diego Museum of Art
San Diego, CA, USA United States of America

This exhibition of 39 works by 28 artists examines some of the ways in which the American impressionists responded to aspects of everyday existence in a period of dynamic social and economic change. The exhibition focuses on the American impressionistsé─˘ portrayals of place, family, and friends. Artists represented include Mary Cassatt, John Singer Sargent, William Merritt Chase, Childe Hassam, George Hitchcock, Theodore Robinson, John Henry Twatchman, and Frederick C. Frieseke, among others. The San Diego Museum of Art is the opening venue for this travelling exhibition.

The exhibition is organized into four thematic sections to suggest ways in which the American Impressionists responded to various aspects of the city and suburbs, the countryside, and their personal and professional lives during a dynamic period of modernization. The American Impressionists belonged to several generations, led varied professional lives, and were among the most thoroughly schooled, widely traveled, cosmopolitan painters in the history of American art. Their canvases are not only enchanting records of light and color, but decipherable reflections of their creatorsé─˘ experiences abroad and at home.
