The Impressionist artist sought to capture impressions of light, color, and shape in a spontaneous way. [Gallery label text, 2007] John Twachtman’s finest paintings were inspired by the beauty of the land on which he lived with his family. Located in Greenwich, Connecticut, the picturesque property included a portion of Horseneck Brook, across which Twachtman built an ornamental but functional footbridge. Here, his children swam in the summer and rowed their boat beneath the bridge’s arched deck. The bridge may have been inspired by similar structures in Venice, where the artist lived in the 1880s and 90s. Twachtman was one of America’s premier impressionist painters and a founding member of the Ten American Painters, a group that included Thomas Dewing and William Merritt Chase, artists whose works are also on view at MAG. The White Bridge’s bright colors, energetic brushwork, and light-filled canvas link Twachtman’s work with that of French impressionist Claude Monet.
