Childe HASSAM (aka Frederick Childe Hassam)
19th c American Impressionist Painting
(Dorchester; MA, 17 October 1859 - 27 August 1935, East Hampton; NY)
Ink on paper
Institute for Aesthetic Development. Brentwood CA.
Childe Hassam became a leading exponent of American Impressionism after spending three years in France. Some believe this chromo was published by Hassam around 1895 or 1918. No other prints of the era bring us closer to the spirit of Monet. You can see original Hassam and Monet paintings at the Legion of Honor Museum in San Francisco. Monet himself did not make prints. If he had they might have looked something like this chromo-lithograph and probably would have been well received. Monet’s paintings reproduce very well. Posters of Monet’s paintings are among the best-selling reproductions in the world. Why? Perhaps it is because in a polluted war-torn world Impressionism evokes the dream of a better place an ideal place of peace and natural beauty.
