IMPRESSIONISM. CHILDE HASSAM.

The Avenue in the rain" - 1917. Oil on canvas - White House Museum - view high resolution image

Childe Hassam (1859-1935) was a key figure in the American Impressionism, though his only contact with a French Impressionist artist was when he took over Pierre Auguste Renoir’s former studio and found some of the painter’s oil sketches left behind. His most famous works are the “Flag” paintings, completed during World War I, and the stunning "The Avenue in the rain" is his most 'impressionistic' painting in the series.
