St. Augustine in a New Light: American Impressionism from the Collection of the Lightner Museum

In the waning years of the 19th century, St. Augustine became a winter haven for Impressionist painters from artists’ colonies in the north. Attracted by the warm climate and picturesque scenery, the artists found a reliable source of income in the wealthy tourists who wintered at Henry Flagler’s hotels. They applied the shimmering light, warm colors, and expressive brushwork of Impressionism to scenes of St. Augustine’s quaint streets, bustling harbors, and magnificent coastline, presenting the Ancient City and its environs in a bold new light.
