What were the contributions of American painters to the development of modern art in Paris? Exploring innovative paintings by artists including James McNeill Whistler, Mary Cassatt and John Singer Sargent, we will uncover the significance of work by key American painters who were drawn to the 19th-century capital of the arts. We will also discuss audacious paintings by the less well-known American artists, Childe Hassam and Cecilia Beaux.
