Theodore Robinson (1854-96) was among a number of American painters who began to visit the small hamlet of Giverny on the Seine River in the late 1880s and early 1890s, where Claude Monet had settled in 1883. Robinson adopted the master's vibrant palette and fresh brush work. He also pursued Monet's rigorous practice of exploring subjects in series and, like his mentor, concentrated on recording aspects of the particular locale where he lived and worked. The book shows how Robinson absorbed and translated Monet's working method, style and subject matter, and demonstrates how Robinson conveyed Impressionism to America. His individual accomplishments and his artistic exchange with Monet are examined by juxtaposing the American's French works with a small number of carefully selected examples by Monet.
