Pier in Gurzuf, by Konstantin Korovin. (1914). Konstantin Korovin, born in Moscow on December 5th, 1861, was a painter by vocation and, one can even say, by birth. It is with good reason that he has been called the greatest exponent of Russian impressionism. Indeed, analyzing Korovin's oeuvre and reading his memoirs, one is led to believe that almost from the very

Canal Saint-Denis, Paris ca. 1876-1882 The art of Stanislas Lépine joins the pre-Impressionists with the Impressionists. Lépine established his reputation with views of Paris and paintings depicting life on the banks of the Seine imbued with an atmosphere unique to his oeuvre.

Niagara Falls 1893-1894 Oil on Canvas 51cmx40cm In the manner of the French master Claude Monet (1840–1926), Twachtman painted at least fourteen versions of Niagara at different times of the day, recording subtle nuances of light and providing some of the rocky structure of the falls to anchor the viewer on firm land.  Twachtman’s technique is bold and confident, moving remarkably toward abstraction while remaining true

(61.7 x 50.2 cm) Frederick Childe Hassam (1859–1935), a pioneer of American Impressionism and perhaps its most devoted, prolific, and successful practitioner, was born in Dorchester, Massachusetts (now part of Boston), into a family descended from settlers of the Massachusetts Bay Colony.
