Image of New England Impressions: Art and the Making of Regional Identity, 1885-1950

For several generations, aspiring New England artists used our history, landscape, environment, and traditional industries as subject matter and muse—drawing inspiration from their environment and helping to shape New England’s image at home and abroad. Some were realists, others impressionists, while many were drawn to genres of daily life. What they shared was a reverence for place, past, and seasonality, and ideas associated with New England’s epic heritage. William Hosley tells the story of the painters, printmakers and photographers who pictured our world “New Englandly.”
