Painting of waves crashing against the rocks on shore of MontereyAmerican Impressionism

April 29th - July 23, 2022

Drawn from the acclaimed collection of the Huntington (WV) Museum of Art, American Impressionism: Treasures from the Daywood Collection showcases work from a transitional time in American art, approximately the 1890s through the 1910s, when artists abandoned the rigors of academic styles and subjects. They turned instead to intimate scenes of the cultivated countryside and figure studies of friends and neighbors.
