Hoosier school - hoosier group

DEFINITION

Moving into the Midwest, Impressionism was promoted by The Hoosier School of painters, based in Indianapolis, Indiana. This movement was at its height of importance between 1890 and 1907. Members are credited with deliberately promoting an American style of Impressionism, rather than one that leaned heavily upon the French influence. The most prominent member and leader was Theodore Steele. Other painters associated with that locale and movement were Otto Stark, William Forsyth, John Ottis Adams, and Richard Buckner Gruelle. Primary subject matter was the Indiana countryside, especially nearby Brown County, where they did plein-air painting. Steele, who lived until 1926, built a Brown County home known as the ???House of the Singing Winds???. This place became the gathering spot of many Hoosier School adherents.
