Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"Hassam's 50-year career is dutifully presented in this expansive catalogue, published with the Metropolitan Museum of Art to accompany the current exhibition of his work (June 7 — September 12). Direct influences on American Impressionist Hassam (1859 — 1935) include Dutch and British masters (Hassam disavowed Monet's influence, though Hassam 'liberated his brushwork' in Paris), influences that mirror the painter's unfailing enthusiasm for his native country and its (and his) Anglo-Saxon forebears. Included among the 374 illustrations (244 in full color) are depictions of the urban environments Hassam cherished (Boston, New York City and Paris) as well as rose-colored, elegant views of the more rugged East Hampton and Maine. 'It has been my life-long aim to retain the natural beauty and dignity of any fine old American community,' Hassam wrote. His greatest achievement remains his mighty (and now iconic) flag series, and depictions of Fifth Avenue in its festooned post-WWI patriotism. The collection also includes an essay on Hassam's framing and marketing techniques, his ventures into other mediums, a checklist of works included in the exhibition and a chronology of his life, all of which contribute to a further contextualization, scholarly and popular, of this American Impressionist."
