HUNTINGTON The Huntington Museum of Art has opened an exhibit titled “American Impressionism,” which will run through July 5.

“We have received a great deal of attention for this exhibit, even on the national level, with an article featured in the February 2020 edition of ‘American Art Review,’”  HMA Executive Director Geoffrey K. Fleming said. “These are beautiful works of art and together they form a very impressive exhibit.”

The Huntington Museum of Art’s collection of American impressionist works includes five oil paintings by Childe Hassam, along with examples by Willard Metcalf, Frank Benson, John Twachtman, Edward Simmons, Robert Reid and J. Alden Weir, all of whom exhibited together as part of the “Ten American Painters,” a group with impressionist leanings.

Other impressionist artists of note in HMA’s permanent collection include Maurice Prendergast, Edward Potthast, William Glackens, Guy Wiggins, Theodore Butler, Hayley Lever, Gari Melchers, Arthur Meltzer, Paul Sawyier and John Singer Sargent.
