John Henry Twachtman – An American Landscape Impressionist
Presented by John Pastor on May 6, 2014


John Henry Twachtman was an American painter best known for his impressionist landscapes. Twachtman’s style is known to be among the more personal and experimental of his generation. He was a member of "The Ten", a loosely allied group of American artists dissatisfied with The Society of American Artists, who banded together in 1898 to exhibit their works as a stylistically unified group. John Pastor will discuss several of the artist’s works from the Tweed collection.
