Telfair Museums opens Monet & American Impressionism

Telfair Museums will display this once-in-a-lifetime exhibition that brings four paintings of French master Claude Monet to Savannah for the first time in the city’s history. Monet and other Paris-based artists introduced Impressionism to the French public in the 1870s, and beginning in the 1880s, American artists took up Monet’s modern approach to light and color. The movement was promoted by American artists, collectors, and art writers. Its popularity continued for forty years, making Impressionism one of the longest-lived and most enthralling artistic expressions in the history of American art.
