John Henry Twachtman

Catalogue Raisonné

The Greenwich Historical Society is thrilled to be the host institution of the John Henry Twachtman Catalogue Raisonné.

The catalogue raisonné began debuting online on July 19, 2021. The result of over twenty-five years of research and development by Lisa N. Peters, Ph.D., the John Henry Twachtman Catalogue Raisonné is the definitive online publication documenting over 750 works by the noted American Impressionist. This free digital resource offers a detailed record of the artist’s oeuvre, life, exhibitions and other material including correspondence and essay entries for every known artwork completed by the artist. Twachtman, who lived in Greenwich from 1890 to 1899, is widely considered among the most original of the leading American Impressionists, and was largely responsible for cultivating the late nineteenth-century artist’s colony that grew around the Holley boarding house in Cos Cob.

The John Henry Twachtman Catalogue Raisonné is generously supported by the Horowitz Foundation for the Arts, the Cross Family Charitable Fund, and the Lunder Foundation.
