Theodore Robinson

Robinson, Theodore, 1852–96, American painter, b. Irasburg, Vt. Beginning his career as a realist, Robinson was profoundly influenced by his meeting with Monet in 1888. Translating the impressionist rendering of light, air, and broken color to the American landscape, Robinson combined contemporary American and European trends. His Giverny: Bird's-Eye View is in the Metropolitan Museum.
