American Impressionist painters delighted in depicting gardens as places for rest, rejuvenation, and creative experimentation. Gardens and the emerging field of garden design became avenues for American Impressionists navigate the social shift of the progressive era. This lecture will explore the art of Childe Hassam, Willard Metcalf, Matilda Browne, and other Impressionists for whom the garden was a muse.
