Ashcan School - Maurice Prendergast part 7

Post-Impressionist artist who worked in oil, watercolour, and monotype. He exhibited as a member of The Eight associated with the Ashcan School, though the delicacy of his compositions and mosaic-like beauty of his style differed from the philosophy of the group.

Prendergast's work was strongly associated from the beginning with leisurely scenes set on beaches and in parks. His early work was mostly watercolour or monotype, and he produced over two hundred monotypes between 1895 and 1902. He also experimented with oil painting in the 1890s, but didn't focus on that medium until the early 1900s.

He developed and continued to elaborate a highly personal style, with boldly contrasting, jewel-like colours, and flattened, pattern-like forms rhythmically arranged on the canvas.
