Between the late 1890s and the mid 1910s, Childe Hassam produced over 100 paintings, watercolors, pastels, and drawings of Connecticut landscapes. Regarded as the foremost impressionist chronicler of New England, Childe Hassam’s prolific body of work included evocative scenes from his time spent at the Holley House in Cos Cob and the Griswold House in Old Lyme.
This catalogue accompanied a 1987 exhibition of Hassam’s work compiled by guest curator Kathleen M. Burnside. In her essay, Burnside presents a biographical timeline of Hassam’s life and work beginning with his 1880s studies of urban Boston and ending with his retirement to East Hampton, Long Island. Burnside also provides a comprehensive analysis of Hassam’s artistic influences, major works, techniques, and impressionist legacy. This catalogue includes 5 color plates and 10 black and white illustrations.
