This catalogue, published by the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, inMoreAmerican Painters in the Age of Impressionism surveys American art from the 1870s to the 1920s, encompassing both the Philadelphia Centennial of 1876 and the Armory show of 1913. This catalogue, published by the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, in conjunction with the exhibition held at the museum from December, 1994, to March, 1995, features more than seventy color plates.After the Civil War, American art underwent a radical reorientation.

No longer bent on creating a national art that would define the unique qualities of the American experience, American artists cast their eyes and minds across the Atlantic, eager to absorb European currents of artmaking.The works of such artists as Winslow Homer, George Inness, and Mary Cassatt are displayed here in a gallery setting intended to evoke the kaleidoscopic exhibition experience of the late-nineteenth-century viewer.These paintings come from the collections of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston (particularly the Wintermann Collection of American Art), the Dallas Museum of Art, the Marion Koogler McNay Art Museum, and the San Antonio Museum of Art, and from numerous private collections.
