Ten American Painters Exhibit Catalog

The Ten American Painters
NPS

The Ten American Painters included America's greatest Impressionists, like Julian Alden Weir & Childe Hassam. Though they began as a fringe group, forced to exhibit together before Impressionism was accepted by the American art establishment, they soon commanded high prices and large crowds for their annual exhibitions.

Notice how many pieces each painter sold & their relative values. How do you think fame affected sales prices? How do differently priced pieces compare in quality, if at all?
