Published in conjunction with a major exhibition, this illuminating volume examines the influence of Claude Monet (1840–1926) on a generation of American artists who encountered Impressionism and made it their own. Monet and other French Impressionists es­chewed academic traditions in favor of spontaneous brushstrokes, bright color palettes, and the transience of everyday reality.  
Featuring works by Monet and more than twenty American artists, including Mary Cassatt, William Mer­ritt Chase, Childe Hassam, Willard Metcalf, Theodore Robinson, and John Henry Twachtman, this exhibition examines how the innovations of French Impression­ism were adopted and transformed into one of the most enduring styles in American painting.  
This book includes eight essays and a short story that examine various aspects of history, culture, literature, and sociology to shed light on how American artists embraced and transformed the style and themes of Monet and other French artists.
