Childe Hassam

Childe Hassam


Nationality: American

Birth Place: Dorchester (Suffolk county, Massachusetts, United States)

America's most famous Impressionist, Childe Hassam specialized in cityscapes and landscapes noted for their refined palette and technique. Born in Boston, he studied first at the Boston Art Club and then in Paris at the Académie Julian with Boulanger, Lefebvre and Doucet. It was in Paris that he embraced the Impressionism of Monet, Pissarro and Sisley, later introducing this style to American audiences. He exhibited in every major national and international exhibition of his time, won more than 30 important prizes and medals, and saw his work enter the principal collections of his day. A key figure in The Ten, a group of American Impressionists, Hassam was invited to participate in the 1913 Armory Show. The paintings in his estate were bequeathed to the American Academy of Arts and Letters - a magnificent legacy for modern artists.
