Still digging out of our 30" Blizzard - Snow by Childe Hassam 1859-1935


Frederick Childe Hassam (American painter, 1859-1935) Boston Twilight

When I think of snow in our neighboring Atlantic coast cities of New York & Boston, I think of the commercial and popular paintings of Frederick Childe Hassam, which is exactly what he would want. Hassam (1859–1935) was a prominent & very prolific American Impressionist painter, noted for his urban & coastal scenes. Along with Mary Cassatt & John Henry Twachtman, Hassam was instrumental in promulgating Impressionism to American collectors, dealers, & museums. He was a master at branding himself & produced over 3,000 paintings, watercolors, etchings, & lithographs in his career. He was a founding member of The Ten, an influential group of American artists of the early 20C.
