About this title


John Twachtman (1853-1902) was one of the most modern American painters of his day, combining European and American influences to create his own highly individual style noted for its contemplative mood and bold immediacy of composition.

From Library Journal:

Peters, a preeminent Twachtman scholar, has written a wonderful collection of essays to accompany the traveling Twachtman exhibition organized by the High Museum of Art in Atlanta. Anyone unfamiliar with Twachtman's life and work need not consult other sources (although Peters dutifully acknowledges the foundation research of earlier scholars). Organizing his text by time period, Peters methodically traces the development of Twachtman's art from his early years in Cincinnati (1835-75) through his death in Gloucester, MA, in 1902. If there is any doubt of Twachtman's mastery as an impressionist, one has only to gaze at any of the fall or winter landscapes that are beautifully reproduced in this volume, along with dozens of other examples from his oeuvre. Oddly, there is neither a table of contents nor a separate list of exhibited works and their provenance. Warmly recommended for most public and academic libraries.AP.
