Childe Hassam

Childe Hassam

(1859 - 1935)
Born: Boston, Massachusetts
Style: Impressionism
Famous Works:
  • Boston Common at Twilight (1885-86)
  • Washington Arch In Spring (1890)
  • The Avenue in the Rain (1917)
Childe Hassam, known for most of his life simply as Childe, was one of America's foremost painters in the Impressionist style. Childe trained in his native Boston as a wood engraver, and later established himself as a freelance illustrator. While enrolled in life painting classes at the Boston Art Club, Childe met and befriended Edmund H. Garrett. It was Garrett who convinced Childe that a trip to Europe was in order, an opportunity for the relatively unexperienced artist to nurture his talent. The men traveled to several countries and Childe was hugely productive, completing almost seventy watercolors that would appear in his solo exhibition the following year. Hassam's interest in Impressionism was not immediate, but he became infatuated with the work of Claude Monet, and soon began experimenting with ideas of light, and impressions of movement. Childe became somewhat of a specialist in urban street scenes, drawing inspiration for some of his most enduring works from the cities he loved, Paris, New York, and Boston. Hassam employed his lush sense of color and flatness of form to convey complex scenes of light and motion. Though most prolific in watercolor, Childe also worked in oil, pastel, and pencil. He became a member of The Ten, a group of influential American artists whose work was tied by an interest in Impressionism. Other members in the group included Frank Benson, John Twachtman, and Willard Metcalf. These artists exhibited together, garnering acclaim and collectors around the United States. Hassam remained loyal to impressionism to the very end, even denouncing modern artistic trends.

The document tape repaired my Bible beautifully! The corner of a razor blade worked great to "scratch" the corner of the tape to get it started. Thanks a million!

This is awesome stuff! I've used it often, especially for Graduation gifts on wooden plaques, with the grads, picture, name cards, invitations, awards etc. Makes a super yet inexpensive gift. Getting this from Misterart.com is convenient, less expensive than driving 40 miles to get it at a craft store! Thank you, Misterart.com!

I use these markers for children's illustrations, and they are wonderful. I do wish there were more color options for colors. I've found the light colors too few, especially when working with skin tones These pens last a very long time and work well with all sorts of papers. The tip options make this a great marker for precision coloring.
