Impressionist Prints of Childe Hassam

October 20, 2018 - January 13, 2019

Graphics Gallery

You may be familiar with Childe Hassam’s impressionist oil paintings, such as Newport Waterfront, which hangs in the FIA’s Rabiah Gallery. This exhibition explores another side of Hassam’s artistic output—his works on paper. He began producing etchings in 1915, turning away from oil paintings to experiment in a different medium. Still impressionist in style, his etchings demonstrate his fascination with city and country landscapes, as well as figures.
