Published in conjunction with an exhibition that originated at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and is scheduled to travel to several locations during 1994 and 1995. Serving as both a catalog and an exposition, this abundantly illustrated volume explores the continuities and differences between American Impressionism and Realism, two movements that are traditionally viewed as merely opposed. The thrust of the exhibition (and this volume) is to forge a new approach to an area of American art history that has heretofore tended more towards description than interpretation, offering historical and social contexts for the works and movements under consideration as well as stylistic analyses, and a biography of each of the 26 artists in the exhibition.
