Impresionismo Americano

Following the exhibition of French Impressionism, organised by art dealer Paul Durand-Ruel in New York in 1886, American artists began to use the new brush-strokes, bright colours and fleeting effects of the French movement; many of them even decided to travel to Paris to study Impressionism firsthand.

This exhibition, organised by the Musée des Impressionnismes Giverny and the Terra Foundation for American Art, in collaboration with the National Galleries of Scotland and Madrid's own Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum, represents the first time an exhibition dedicated to the expansion of Impressionism in the USA is shown in Spain. Via more than 60 paintings by American artists, you can discover how they interpreted and adapted Impressionism between the 1880s and 1890s and its subsequent development by 1900.
