Impressionism: A View from Philadelphia

This exhibition will offer a Philadelphia-centric perspective on American Impressionism through works from the Museum’s collection, including a number of recent acquisitions. Mary Cassatt, who was born outside Pittsburgh but raised and educated in Philadelphia, was an active member of the Impressionist group in Paris in the 1870s and inspired many younger American painters to embrace the movement. While Pennsylvania Impressionism is generally associated with Bucks County, many of its leading practitioners were students of Robert Vonnoh at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, and they remained part of our city’s art scene.
