The Power of "Ten": John Henry Twachtman and the American Impressionists, late 19th Century
"Winter in Cincinnati" is an early work by a prolific American Impressionist, John Henry Twachtman, painted prior to is formal art training in Europe.
He painted landscapes, dreamy snow scenes like this.
Considering the artist only lived to about 50, he was very productive. In 1898, just a few years before his death, he and other American Impressionists banded together to promote and display their works (considered very modern at the time.) The group was called "The Ten".
