Among the numerous varietals of French Impressionism that took root in other countries were two that flourished in the United States: The one commonly known as American Impressionism was found in the east, predominantly in artists’ groups in New York, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Indiana. The other, distinctive enough to receive its own name, was California Impressionism; it appeared first in northern California, around the San Francisco area, and later in southern California, in Los Angeles and environs. Unlike the eastern variety, where names like Twachtman, Chase, Hassam, Weir, and Metcalf are familiar enough, the western variety has fewer well-known artists. There is no disagreement, however, that among the finest of them was Granville Redmond (1871-1935).
