Jersey Shore Impressionists
Water and light have seduced artists through the years and the quality of these elements at the New Jersey Shore continues to attract artists to this day. Between the late 1800s and 1940, an inspired group of painters were drawn to the New Jersey coastline, forming communities of artists.
Jersey Shore Impressionists breaks new ground in the history of American art by recognizing the distinct influence of New Jersey and its Shore on impressionist era American painters. This book establishes – for the first time – a category of impressionist American painters who focused on, or were profoundly influenced by, the landscapes and seascapes of this Shore — from Sandy Hook and Highlands to the Barnegat Bay region to Cape May.12-1/4" x 10-1/4" hardcover
