Impressionism: American Gardens on Canvas
May 14 – September 11, 2016
New York Botanical Gardens, Bronx, NY

Excerpt from New York Botanical Gardens, Bronx, NY:

American Impressionism, a prominent artistic style that flourished at the turn of the 20th century, comes to life in a captivating Garden-wide exhibition. In the Conservatory, stroll through an American Impressionist garden, a stunning interpretation by Francisca Coelho, NYBG’s renowned curator and designer, of the alluring gardens that influenced iconic artists such as Childe Hassam and John Singer Sargent. In the Art Gallery, view a beautiful complementary display of more than 20 paintings and sculptures by these famed artists and their contemporaries that capture the colors, shadows, and ephemeral quality of light they observed in the natural world and infused in their distinctive imagery; the collection has been assembled by Guest Curator Linda S. Ferber, Ph.D., Director Emerita and Senior Art Historian of the New-York Historical Society.
