Press Release

Debra Force Fine Art is pleased to present Shades of Impressionism: 1870s – 1930s, on view from September 15th – October 28th. Featuring city scenes, figurative works, landscapes, seascapes, and still lifes, the exhibition explores American Impressionism from the late 19th and early 20th Centuries, as well as the Post-Impressionist era of the 1920s and 1930s.

New York and France were the primary gathering places for these artists, and both locales are featured prominently in the exhibition. Views of New York City by Gifford Beal, Paul Cornoyer, and Theodore Robinson are exhibited alongside portraits and figurative paintings by William Merritt Chase, Robert Henri, and Irving Ramsey Wiles painted in the artists’ New York studios. Depictions of French landscapes by William Glackens, Abbott Fuller Graves, and Leon Kroll are accompanied by paintings made in and around the town of Giverny by John Leslie Breck, Theodore Earl Butler, Pauline Palmer, and Louis Ritman. 

Other subjects include views of Venice by Breck, Jane Peterson, and Maurice Prendergast as well as the Massachusetts coast by Willard Metcalf and Frederick Mulhaupt. Edward Herbert Barnard, William de Leftwich Dodge, Ernest Lawson, Mary Elizabeth Price, Robert Reid, Abbott Thayer, John Henry Twachtman, and Julian Alden Weir are also included in the show.
