Product Description
American Impressionism Book of Postcards
Alongside the rapid post–Civil War growth of American industry came new interest in arts and culture. A New York gallery scene developed. Collectors imported European works that showcased their wealth and sophistication. And artists went abroad to study under the established masters. Meanwhile, a radical style was evolving in Paris.

Impressionism rejected the strict techniques and conservative themes preferred by the Académie des Beaux-Arts and instead favored plein-air landscapes, domestic scenes, natural light, and unbridled colors and brushstrokes. The style initially had many detractors, when it got noticed. But select American artists such as Mary Cassatt and John Singer Sargent embraced its principles early and began painting with the new French masters, leading the way for broad American appreciation of impressionism.

Artists back in the United States continued to develop the style, and as the end of the nineteenth century neared, impressionism had become an integral part of American art.
