A Bird's-Eye View

Theodore Robinson American

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 770

Theodore Robinson, although academically trained at France’s École des Beaux-Arts, became the leading American disciple of the progressive impressionist Claude Monet. Living as a close friend and neighbor of the famous painter in the artists’ colony of Giverny between 1887 and 1892, Robinson experimented with plein-air (outdoor) painting in numerous depictions of that bucolic village, such as this work.
