American Impressionism

The first exhibition in Spain to examine the advent of Impressionism in America in the late 19th century, following the landmark showing of French Impressionist work in New York in 1886.

That exhibition opened the eyes of the US artworld to developments across the Atlantic. American artists began to incorporate elements of the French art movement into their work while many of them travelled to Paris to experience Impressionism first hand.

On show in Madrid are around 60 paintings highlighting how American art was influenced by Impressionism in the 1880s and 1890s, and how it had interpreted the movement by the end of that century.

Earlier in 2014 the exhibition was shown at the Musée des Impresionnismes Giverny and at the National Galleries of Scotland in Edinburgh.

Tues-Sun 10.00-19.00.
