Prolific Hassam

“It is refreshing to note that Mr. Hassam, in the midst of so many good, bad, and indifferent art currents, seems to be paddling his own canoe with a good deal of independence and method.”

An art reviewer wrote this about the cityscapes of American Impressionist painter F. Childe Hassam (1859 – 1935). Hassam was a prolific painter whose works I saw recently on a visit to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, www.lacma.org. LACMA has The Spanish Stairs which I climbed on my honeymoon trip to Rome. They also exhibit one of Hassam’s popular flag theme paintings. You can browse through hundreds of his paintings on this site.

Let us all paddle our own canoe, where ever that may take us!
