With an eye for the critical reception of his work, Peters constructs a narrative of Twachtman's artistic development, from his student days in Munich to his early death in Gloucester, Massachusetts. Accompanying the traveling exhibition organized by the High Museum of Art, this fully illustrated catalogue elegantly reveals the subtle delicacy of Twachtman's oeuvre."--BOOK JACKET.
