When the world gets urban, the South gets Southern. That’s one way to sum up Scenic Impressions: Southern Paintings from the Johnson Collection, which tells the visual story of shifting stylistic trends in the 19th and early 20th centuries, when Savannah artists of their day often found themselves working in contrast to the increasing mechanism of Europe. Their focus on Tonalism, Impressionism, and naturalism created unique works that celebrated the South as an exotic other offering refuge from a rapidly modernizing world.
