John Henry Twachtman
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.
A Virtual Evening Celebrating the Launch of the John Henry Twachtman Catalogue Raisonné
The Greenwich Historical Society is pleased to mark the debut of the John Henry Twachtman Catalogue Raisonné with an illustrated virtual talk by Lisa N. Peters, Ph.D., tracing John Henry Twachtman’s road to Greenwich, where he lived with his family from 1890 to 1899 and created the Impressionist works for which he is best known. Dr. Peters charts Twachtman’s artistic career through focus on a few key works, from his early days in Cincinnati, to European study and travel, to New York City, and finally to Greenwich.
This virtual event was held in celebration of the public launch of the John Henry Twachtman Catalogue Raisonné, a collaboration between Dr. Peters and the Greenwich Historical Society. The John Henry Twachtman Catalogue Raisonné is a free digital resource offering detailed records of Twachtman’s oeuvre, life, exhibitions, and other material including correspondence and entries for every known artwork by the artist.
