Childe Hassam. Theodore Robinson, J. Alden Weir. John Twachtmann. Nearly one hundred years ago, these artists and other like them perhaps like you today were attracted to Connecticut for its beauty and charm.

They brought with them world-class training, extraordinary talent, and a rare appreciation for the stirring landscapes that are Connecticuts alone. Some stayed and some did not, but the very best helped to create on canvas (and in some cases on door panels and walls) what has become known around the world as American Impressionism.

Now American Impressionism can be seen in a way that dramatically heightens both appreciation and enjoyment. When you set out on the Connecticut Impressionist Art Trail, you will experience more than a guided visit to 11 museums boasting some of the finest American Impressionism in the world. You will also discover the places where it all was born a countryside whose beauty still inspires and a country life whose simplicity still renews.

From the West, your first stop on the Impressionist Art Trail is the Bruce Museum. Just off I-95s exit 3, the Bruce is near Greenwichs four-star restaurants, hotels, and shops.
