One of the finest private holdings of American impressionist art in upstate New York, the Thomas Clark Collection is a testament to the enduring legacy of Impressionist painting in American art. The collection emphasizes representative examples from the last great generation of artists who emerged both during and in the aftermath of the American Impressionist movement (1880-1920). These artists were the students and sketching partners of the seminal figures in the development of Impressionism in America, such as William Merritt Chase, Willard L. Metcalf, John Henry Twachtman, and Robert Henri. The American Impressionists were primarily concerned with capturing the effects of light, color, and atmosphere achieved by painting directly from nature — out-of-doors — rather than in the studio. This generation of landscape painters flourished in areas such as Old Lyme, Connecticut; Cape Ann, Massachusetts; New Hope, Pennsylvania; and Woodstock, New York; as well as areas of Vermont and California. The exhibition includes about 70 works by artists such as Arthur C. Goodwin, Emile Gruppé, George Loftus Noyes, and Harry Aiken. Organized by HMA.
