- "American Impressionism and Realism: The Painting of Modern Life, 1885-1915," is currently showing at the Denver Museum of Art through Feb. 5, 1995. On loan from The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the approximately 80 paintings explore the continuities and differences between two significant movements in American painting - Impressionism and Realism. Artists associated with both movements explored three broad themes in their work: the country, the city and the home. The featured artists include: John Singer Sargent, Mary Cassatt, William Merritt Chase, Childe Hassam, Robert Henri, John Sloan, William Glackens and George Bellows.
