American Impressionist: Childe Hassam and the Isle of Shoals 

When: March 19-June 19 2016
In the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries, Childe Hassam spent decades painting Appledore Island, a resort in the Gulf of Maine. His style is beautiful and refined, like a slightly more fastidious Monet, but the subject is repetitious, and oddly, NCMA has chosen to pipe in distracting seagull sounds, like a small-town natural history museum. It’s hard to forget these are essentially a well-heeled person’s pretty vacation paintings. —Brian Howe
