Brief, 15-minute tour on the painting Azaleas (1898) by American Impressionist, John Henry Twachtman. More than any of his American contemporaries, Twachtman embraced the high keyed color of the French Impressionists and moved farther away from the representation of recognizable objects. Twachtman's mature paintings are notable for their almost abstract character, as he paid increasingly less attention to modelling forms.
