The Bridge At Giverny


The Inner Harbor, Rockport

 

 

Dawson Dawson-Watson is best known for an aesthetic that combined traditional, often agrarian, themes with Impressionist brushwork and a sunlit palette. He was the first English painter to travel to the primarily American artists’ colony in Giverny, France. His intentions when he arrived in 1888 were to stay for two weeks, but he remained in Giverny for five years. He came to Hartford, Connecticut in 1893 as Director of the Hartford Art Society and over the next decade journeyed to Quebec, Canada, Scituate, Massachusetts, and Woodstock, New York. After exhibiting in the Louisiana Purchase Exhibition in 1904, he decided to settle in St. Louis and became the area’s leading exponent of Impressionism. After 1914, he began to split his residency between St. Louis and San Antonio, Texas.
