This exhibition features remarkable American Impressionist paintings from the Arkell collections. Twelve paintings recently returned from the Fenimore Art Museum's exhibition "American Impressionism: Paintings of Light and Life" will be featured along with other treasures from the permanent collection. Sun-dappled views of France and America by Childe Hassam, John Twatchman, Theodore Robinson, J. Alden Weir, and Edward Redfield are among the notable paintings in this exhibition. Most American Impressionists spent time in Paris and Monet’s hometown of Giverny where they saw the work of French Impressionists. Once they returned to America they made the new Impressionist style their own. Views of the New England countryside, coastal communities and New York City were popular subjects for the American Impressionists. The exhibition includes Twatchtman’s "Josephine in the Garden" in Giverny, Hassam's "Provincetown", Twatchtman’s "Gloucester Harbor" and Ernest Lawson’s "Brooklyn Bridge."
