John Henry Twachtman - 1853-1902 (Soft Cover)
Cincinnati-born John Henry Twachtman was one of the most original artists of his era. During his early career, he studied in Munich and Paris, and was a prominent figure in a generation of cosmopolitan American artists who broke away from the literal realism of the Hudson River School, turning to European art for inspiration and developing subjective and expressive styles. His approach gradually evolved from a dark realist manner in the late 1870s to a tonal lyrical aesthetic in the mid-1880s that reflected the influence of the art of James McNeill Whistler. During the 1890s, Twachtman developed a distinctive and personalized Impressionist method, with which he captured nuances of light and atmosphere in the familiar landscape near his home in Greenwich, Connecticut. This 24-page black and white catalogue accompanied a landmark 1968 exhibition of Twachtman's art at Spanierman Gallery. It includes an essay by Richard J. Boyle and sixteen black and white plates.
