Description: John Twachtman (1853-1902): A "Painter's Painter," was an exhibition of over eighty works spanning the career of an artist whose landscapes are esteemed as probably the most original, modern, and poetic among those of the American Impressionists. Incapable of following trends or painting to please the art buyers of his time, Twachtman never created derivative or simply pretty images, and his devotion to a spirit of inquiry, experimentation, and to his personal vision brought him an unmatched admiration from his peers, who deemed him a "painter's painter," and an artist, ahead of his era, whose "time would come."
