The Lightner Museum presents the “American Impressionism: Treasures from the Daywood Collection” exhibit from April 8 until July 5, 2021.
This spring, the Lightner Museum celebrates the evocative, timeless beauty of late 19th and early 20th-century American art. "American Impressionism: Treasures from the Daywood Collection" features paintings from the acclaimed collection of the Huntington Museum of Art in West Virginia. The exhibition will run from April 8, 2021-July 5, 2021.
"Treasures from the Daywood Collection" showcases work from a transitional time in American art when painters abandoned the rigors of academic styles and subjects. Inspired by their European counterparts, they turned to intimate scenes of the cultivated countryside and figure studies of friends and neighbors that reflected the more modern influences of Impressionism and Post-Impressionism. Robert Henri, George Inness, George Luks, Gari Melchers, John Sloan, John Twachtman, and J. Alden Weir are among the notable artists featured. The exhibition was organized by the Huntington Museum of Art and is toured by International Arts & Artists, Washington, DC.
