Robinson lived mostly abroad from 1887 to 1892, with much of that time spent in Giverny, France, home to French impressionist Claude Monet (1840–1926), with whom Robinson developed a close relationship. In Giverny Robinson’s “painting acquired the attributes of the French impressionist school, the high color and flickering light, the broken brush stroke and repeated diagonal areas of mottled color, but never losing the form and structure of the American aesthetic.”[1]
