Ashcan School - William Glackens part 4

William Glackens by Robert Henri 1904 
oil on canvas 198.1 x 96.5 cm
William Glackens (1870 - 1938) studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and later moved to New York City, where he co-founded what came to be called the Ashcan School art movement. This group of artists, dubbed by the press: "the Eight Independent Painters" or The Eight, chose to exhibit their work without pre-approval by the juries of the existing establishment. He became known for his dark-hued paintings of street scenes and daily life in the city's neighbourhoods. His later work was brighter in tone, and showed the influence of Renoir. During much of his career, Glackens also worked for newspapers and magazines in Philadelphia and New York City.

This is part 4 of a 5-part post on the works of William Glackens. For biographical notes see part 1. For earlier works see parts 1-3.
