“American Impressionism” at the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum, Madrid.

Autumn 1880 by Mary Cassatt © Petit Palais / Roger Viollet

The Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum in Madrid plays host to the first ever exhibition in Spain dedicated to impressionism in America.

Whilst artists such as Mary Cassat and John Singer spent many years in France where they forged close relationships with Degas and Monet, they would have to wait until 1886 for the first French impressionist exhibition to be organized in New York, marking a split in American pictorial art. Over an array of pieces by Mary Cassat, John Sargent and James Whistler, this exhibition unveils their role in the development of impressionism in relation to the pictorial technique of American artists.
From 4th November to 1st February 2015.
