Childe Hassam: Impressionist in the West

Overview

"The renowned American impressionist Childe Hassam built his reputation on light-filled images depicting the streets of New York and New England's coastal resorts. During his sojourns in the West, he painted at least sixty images ranging from portraits and still lifes to landscapes and seascapes in oil, watercolor, and pastel." Childe Hassam: Impressionist in the West explores this significant, but little known, body of work in the context of the artist's entire oeuvre and larger developments in modern art at the turn of the century.

Overview

"The renowned American impressionist Childe Hassam built his reputation on light-filled images depicting the streets of New York and New England's coastal resorts. During his sojourns in the West, he painted at least sixty images ranging from portraits and still lifes to landscapes and seascapes in oil, watercolor, and pastel." Childe Hassam: Impressionist in the West explores this significant, but little known, body of work in the context of the artist's entire oeuvre and larger developments in modern art at the turn of the century. This richly illustrated catalogue investigates how Hassam's images of the West mirror a number of his personal and professional concerns; provides insights into technical aspects of his work, which he tended to adapt to the subject and circumstances at hand; and looks at how the West appealed to the artist's broader interests and concerns, such as his desire to create an art that was purely American in both content and style.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The most celebrated impressionist in the history of American art, Hassam is easy to like. This beautiful exhibition catalog, which accompanied a 2004 show at the Portland Art Museum, OR, shows off his rhythmic brush strokes and bright clear color. It is the first monograph devoted to the artist's West Coast travels. (Previous scholarship focused on the artist's depiction of East Coast cities during America's Gilded Age.) In her crisp essay Bullock, the show's curator, places Hassam's work within the broader context of his career and also examines the meaning of the region for the artist, provocatively suggesting that Hassam saw the West Coast as a masculine antidote to the perceived femininity of the impressionist school of art. The book complements Childe Hassam, American Impressionist, a catalog for the 2004 survey of the painter's career at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The relatively modest cover price makes it an excellent value for all libraries with an American art collection.-Katherine C. Adams, Bowdoin Coll.
