Frederick Childe Hassam (1859–1935) was born in Dorchester Massachusetts. He was a prominent pioneer of American impressionism, with academic education from France and lifelong residence in New York. His artworks portrayed modern cities, charming rural villages, old-fashioned gardens and rocky coasts. He is best known for his “flag-draped Fifth Avenue during World War I” painting, and for his beautiful depictions of radiant sunlight over the coast of Maine.
