American Art

Celebrate America's rich artistic heritage with ART in a Click. We feature over two centuries of artists and major art movements which influenced the history of art throughout the world, from the Hudson River School of landscape painting through American Impressionism, Illustration and the decorative arts, American folk art, Abstract Expressionism and Pop Art. Thomas Cole was the founder of the Hudson River School which adopted the English landscape painters emphasis on nature and infused it with local American color. Other artists in the movement include Albert Bierstadt and Frederic Church. The American Impressionists, which include, among others, Childe Hassam, Mary Cassatt and William Merritt Chase, were inspired by nature and light as were the French Impressionists, Claude Monet and Auguste Renoir.William Merritt Chase, an American painter and influential teacher, inspired generations of artists such as Georgia O'Keeffe. Louis Comfort Tiffany created an empire in the decorative arts with his famous studio that produced stained glass lamps, vases and windows in techniques that cannot be imitated. In the 1950's, a new generation of painters were giving birth to a new art, which shifted the emphasis of the art world from Paris to New York.
Abstract Expressionist artist Jackson Pollock's drip paintings liberated future generations of artists and encouraged the viewer to have a purely emotional response to an image. Pop Art of the 1960's was a direct reaction to Abstract Expressionism. Artist involved with this movement sought to create more concrete images and to respond to the social condition. Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein and Jasper Johns produced images that bridged the gap between low art and high art with their paintings of commercial images such as soup cans, comic strips, flags and targets
