Historical Context:
Frederick Childe Hassam (1959-1935) was an American Impressionist painter noted for his urban and coastal scenes. Over his career he produced over 3,000 paintings, watercolors, etchings, and lithographs. He learned his impressionistic painting techniques while traveling and studying in Paris, France, relying like many painters at the time, on plein-air painting, or painting in nature versus a studio.
