Twachtman was one of the most lyrical landscape painters among the American impressionists. Born in Cincinnati he was the son of immigrant parents from Hanover, Germany. Study in art at the Ohio Mechanics Institute, the McMicken School of Design, and then the Royal Academy in Munich. He exhibited in the first exhibition of The Society of American Artists, an organization founded in 1877 by European trained artists who wanted an alternative exhibition group to the conservative National Academy of Design. In 1883 he returned to Europe enrolling in the Academie Julian in Paris and painting in the private studios of Lefebvre and Boulanger. Later he helped to found The Ten American Painters - a group of ten impressionist and tonalist painters who wanted to be independent from the Society of American Artists.
