John Leslie Breck: American Impressionist

September 18, 2021 - January 2, 2022

Mint Museum Uptown at Levine Center for the Arts

 

Inspired by The Mint Museum’s 2016 acquisition of John Leslie Breck’s canvas Suzanne Hoschedé-Monet Sewing, this will be the first-ever retrospective of Breck’s beautiful Impressionist paintings. In 1887, Breck was one of the founders of the American art colony at Giverny and was among the earliest American artists to embrace the Impressionist style. He was also one of the first to exhibit his Impressionist paintings in this country and helped to popularize the style during his years working in the Boston area in the 1890s. This important exhibition will include approximately 70 of Breck’s finest works, drawn from public and private collections as well as the illustrious Terra Foundation collection of American art. Many of the works in the exhibition have not been on public view in more than a century, if ever. It will also feature 10-12 related paintings by his French and American Impressionist colleagues, such as Theodore Robinson, Willard Metcalf, Lila Cabot Perry, Dennis Miller Bunker, and Claude Monet, which will provide important art historical context for Breck’s work. The Mint Museum’s Senior Curator of American Art, Dr. Jonathan Stuhlman is collaborating with Breck scholars Jeffery Brown and Rob Leith, who have uncovered a wealth of new details on the artist and incorporated them into a revelatory essay for the fully illustrated exhibition catalogue, which will be the first monograph on the artist ever produced. - Dr. Jonathan Stuhlman, Senior Curator of American Art, The Mint Museum
