American Impressionists in Spain…and More

Art Appreciation Explorations with Ocean View Arts

Peek into the “somewhat unexplored waters of Spain’s influence on American art of the 19th and early 20th centuries” as we tour the spectacular exhibition, “Americans in Spain: Painting and Travel, 1820-1920.” Whether you attend this outstanding exhibit in person or not, this virtual tour offers exciting background and insights into the artists and art world of the time. It features a previously lost Mary Cassatt painting which was rediscovered in 2018 and on public display for the first time in a century!

American artists in the exhibition include Mary Cassatt, John Singer Sargent, William Merritt Chase, Thomas Eakins, James Abbott McNeill Whistler, Robert Henri. We’ll encounter some art by Europeans such as Edouard Manet, Diego Velazquez, and M.C. Escher,  too!

The exhibition, “Americans in Spain: Painting and Travel, 1820-1920.” is at the Chrysler Museum in Norfolk, VA through May 16, 2021, and continues at the Milwaukee Art Museum (June 11 – Oct. 3). Whether you will be able to see it in person or not,  you will find this art appreciation exploration inspiring and informative!
