Ten American Painters
The Ten American Painters (also known as The Ten) was an artists' group formed in 1898 to exhibit their play as a unified group. John Henry Twachtman, J. Alden Weir, and Childe Hassam were the driving forces in back the organization. Dissatisfied subsequently the conservatism of the American art establishment, the three artists recruited seven others from Boston, New York City, and elsewhere on the East Coast, with the wish of creating an exhibition action that valued their view of originality, imagination, and exhibition quality. The Ten achieved popular and necessary success, and lasted two decades previously dissolving.
