Frederick Childe Hassam (October 17, 1859 – August 27, 1935) was an American Impressionist painter, noted for his urban and coastal scenes. Along with Mary Cassatt and John Henry Twachtman, Hassam was instrumental in promulgating Impressionism to American collectors, dealers, and museums. Hassam demonstrated an interest in art early. He had his first lessons in drawing and watercolor while attending The Mather School, but his parents took little notice of his nascent talent. As a child, Hassam excelled at boxing and swimming at Dorchester High School.

Ten Pound Island - Childe Hassam (1859-1935) was a prolific American Impressionist painter, noted for his urban and coastal scenes. He produced over 3,000 paintings, watercolors, etchings, and lithographs over the course of his career, and was an influential American artist of the early 20th century.

Childe Hassam has long been recognized as America's foremost Impressionist painter, yet the sheer size and variety of his output have hindered a full appreciation of his work. The present volume seeks to remedy this by offering, for the first time, a comprehensive survey of the artist's career.That career began in his native Boston, where he worked as an illustrator and a watercolor painter. Hassam absorbed the principles of Impressionism during three crucial years spent in Paris in the mid-1880s. Largely self-taught, he emerged from his stay a brilliant colorist with a style uniquely his own. On his return to the United States, Hassam settled in New York, and the next two decades saw him produce his finest work, as he painted ceaselessly in the cities and the coastal resorts of the east.Believing that the artist should paint his own time in the most modern manner, and convinced that the beauties of America rivaled those to be found anywhere, Hassam was an early experimenter with pure color and sought to capture specific effects of light in landscapes and everyday city scenes alike. His virtuosity encompassed everything from radiant New England skies to the haunting glare of lamplight in a snow-covered park. Flower-filled gardens in Villiers-le-Bel and on the Isles of Shoals, the bustling boulevards of Paris and the carriage-lined squares of Old New York, the quaint harbor towns of Newport and Gloucester - these and other unassuming subjects were transformed by the artist's fresh vision. Hassam was also the first to proclaim the majestic dignity of New England churches in his work.This monograph is notable for its careful selection and analysis of Hassam's finest oils and watercolors, many of them in private collections and never published before. A number of errors in previous publications on the artist, ranging from falsely identified works to details of Hassam's travels, are corrected here, and new information is provided on such a classic painting as Grand Prix Day. Recently discovered letters shed new light on the artist's views and on his personality, a strange mixture of irreverence and New England propriety. These letters are printed in an appendix, together with other writings by Hassam and interviews with him. A bibliography and a chronology that plots the artist's movements year by year add to the value of the book as an essential reference work on the Impressionist movement in America and its most important exponent.

As a self-learning artist I found and continue to find this book extremely enjoyable and helpful. Childe Hassam is one of my favorite painters. If he had lived into his 80s we could have met. He painted in both watercolor and oils. He did great scenes of daily city life. He went to France, but continued to do his own thing. He picked up on impressionism but eventually realized there was an American school of painting (we had Homer and Sargent after all). I like his early work best -the horse/cabbie scenes. The critics got on him for painting so many rainy street scenes and he (unfortunately)he moved into other areas. He was always working on selling his paintings. The author, Ulrich Hiesinger, is an excellent writer and I would recommend anything he does. The book itself is large and filled with color prints and old photos and uses a very friendly type-face. There is a photo of Childe in his studio about 1885. It looks cluttered and cold. It reminds me not to be a "studio wimp" but to get it done wherever you are. You will like this book.

Terrific book with good biographical info, wonderful color and images. It couldn't be better. It covers all of the artist's life and work.

Beautiful book, with lots of high-quality reproductions of the paintings in full color, including many covering half to full pages. 173 pages, with thick matte paper.

Who was Childe Hassam and who is Ulrich Hiesinger? I'm not sure and I have no idea. I looked all over this book and I couldn't find even a brief biographical sketch of Mr. Hiesinger. Is he a journalist or an artist or a professor? I suppose I will never know. I do know a bit more about Childe Hassam. For one thing, his first name was really Frederick. There are some pretty extensive excerpts from letters that he wrote and he was an opinionated fellow, so you do get to know a little bit about him. He liked American artists and did not care much for European artists. He thought very highly of himself.... I wanted to know more about the soul of the man but in that I was disappointed. The book is too much of a travelogue and skips from place to place in New England and Europe following Hassam around and giving cold facts about when he was in this place and what he painted there. There is not enough analysis of the paintings. Mr. Hiesinger is very vague about what he thinks makes a particular piece good or bad, except that in general he seems to think that sketchy is good and highly finished is bad. I beg to differ, by the way. Hassam obviously had a lot of talent but he produced too much work because he depended totally on sales to provide his living. One strong point of this book is that there are almost 200 reproductions, most of them in color. It allows you to see that Hassam produced a few great paintings and a few good ones, but also many mediocre works. He was at his best when he was young, in my opinion as later on he tended to dash things off to maximize sales. He was obviously greatly influenced by the French Impressionists although this apparently was a sore spot with him. If you want an introduction to Hassam this is worth reading. If you know that you like his work it is worth buying for the many high quality plates. If you want a definitive biography, this is not the book for you. Tantalizingly, Mr. Hiesinger mentions in a couple of places that Hassam apparently had a lifetime problem with alcohol. You are never even given a clue as to what demons were in his closet...

excellent

Many Americans know of the French Impressionists, too bad many are void of this grand American Impressionist. See his paintings of New York and Boston. The French Impressionists never painted any of our great cities. They seemed to have no regard for them, like we do.

Gorgeous book.
What a bargain for a wonderful book. It met every expectation.
