This idyllic Impressionist landscape by Breck clearly reflects his involvement with the American artist colony in Giverny as well as his close friendship with Claude Monet. Painted with dappled brushstrokes in a pastel range of blues, pinks, and greens, Marsh View is a quintessential example of early American Impressionism.

Not only is Marsh View a superb example of John Leslie Breck’s mature style, it also captures the very essence of American Impressionist painting. As one of the earliest exponents of Impressionism, Breck helped to popularize the artistic movement in America, namely Boston where he resided upon his return from France. His close association with Claude Monet is particularly evident in this work. Marsh View is in excellent condition and has a very fine period frame, making it a marvelous addition to any collection of American Impressionism.
