Childe Hassam

The Ledges

Image with a sense of unity from a blue-orange contrast throughout, and unified impressionist brushwork. The static square format helps balance the energetic brushwork.

Frederick Childe Hassam (b. October 17, 1859, Dorchester, Boston, Massachusetts) was a prominent and prolific American Impressionist painter, noted for his urban and coastal scenes. Along with Mary Cassatt and John Henry Twachtman, Hassam was instrumental in promulgating Impressionism in America.
