At the heart of this display the Denver Art Museum (14 November–13 March 2022) are two galleries dedicated to James Abbot McNeill Whistler and Mary Cassatt, who each travelled to Paris from the United States in the mid 19th century. Other artists who made the journey across the Atlantic, from John Singer Sargent to Henry Ossawa Tanner, are also represented in this wide-ranging survey of more than 100 works, which looks variously at the influence on American artists of academic painting at the Salon, avant-garde artist colonies in Normandy and Brittany, and the Impressionist coterie in the French capital.
