Taking its lead from French artists like Renoir and Monet, the American impressionist movement followed its own path, a story closely tied to a love of gardens and a desire to preserve nature in a rapidly urbanizing nation. As America made its epic move from a nation of farmers to a land of factories, the pioneering American Impressionists crafted a sumptuous visual language that told the story of an era.
