American Impressionism and Realism: A Landmark Exhibition from the Met explores more than 70 Impressionist and Realist paintings from collection of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. This richly illustrated volume presents works by some of America's foremost artists of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, including James McNeill Whistler, John Singer Sargent, Winslow Homer, Childe Hassam, William Merritt Chase, Maurice Prendergast and Mary Cassatt. H Barbara Weinberg, the Metropolitan's Alice Pratt Brown Curator of American Paintings and Sculpture investigates light-filled landscapes and seascapes, magnificent portraits, and other images reflecting aspects of modern life at the turn of the twentieth century -- cities, leisure, and the tasks and pleasures of women and children.
