Arts Everyday Living: Through an American Impressionist Eyes–Midsummer into Autumn

Although American Impressionist Willard Metcalf (1858-1925) traveled widely (including Monet’s home at Giverny), he returned to his roots in New England in his later career.  The theme of landscape was his forte; studying and interpreting the changing seasons, he has portrayed so expressively in Midsummer Shadows and Le Sillon.
