Transatlantic Impressions: Where Americans Met the French Impressionists

The DAI’s Curator of Education, Dr. Susan Martis, presents how Americans responded to the European Impressionists. The talk coincides with the special exhibition American Impressionism: The Lure of the Artists’ Colony, on view through May 31.

Dr. Martis joined The DAI in May 2014. She earned a Ph.D. in Art History from Case Western Reserve University. Her fields of specialization are late 19th- and early 20th-century European and American art. She taught art history at several universities, including comprehensive surveys of art and courses about the history of American art and architecture, the history of photography, Impressionism and Post-Impressionism, and twentieth-century art and architecture. As a research associate at the Baker-Nord Center for the Humanities at Case Western Reserve University she developed programs for faculty, student and public events. Susan also worked for the Putnam Sculpture Collection at this University. At the Cleveland Museum of Art, she created curricular materials and presented lessons for the distance learning program.
