This exhibit includes four paintings by Monet, the founder of Impressionism, along with works of American artists that traveled to Monet's home in Giverny to study with the master.  American artists then returned to the U.S. and began teaching Impressionism to other artists and the movement spread.  Some of the works in the exhibit are from American artists that followed the movement and put their own particular touch to the scenes and brush strokes typical of Impressionism.  Monet and American Impressionism will be on display at the Hunter Museum through September 20th.
