THEODORE ROBINSON SOCIETY From rather humble beginnings, one of Evansville’s residents achieved international fame as an impressionist artist. Theodore was considered a pioneer in American Impressionism. Since the 1880s, Theodore’s work has been shown in some of the finest galleries in the world. He was a friend and associate of world famous painters Claude Monet, Edgar Degas and Auguste Renoir.
