    Beginning in 1925, William Glackens divided his time between Europe and America with extended periods in France. After an early trip to Spain and France in 1906, where Glackens encountered the work of Pierre Auguste Renoir, he had an awakening response to color. Glackens abandoned the gritty, urban aesthetic of The Eight for a more colorful palette. Three Tomatoes' feathery brushstrokes coalesce to produce a lush, shimmery surface on the fruits. The bright reds against the rich blues and purples show the artist's mastery of color and luminosity inspired by the daring chromatic experiments of Renoir.
