Childe Hassam : American impressionist by Ulrich W Hiesinger( Book )
16 editions published between 1994 and 1999 in English and held by 938 libraries worldwide
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

Childe Hassam : impressionist in the West by Margaret E Bullock( Book )
2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 672 libraries worldwide
"The renowned American impressionist Childe Hassam built his reputation on light-filled images depicting the streets of New York and New England's coastal resorts. During his sojourns in the West, he painted at least sixty images ranging from portraits and still lifes to landscapes and seascapes in oil, watercolor, and pastel." "Childe Hassam: Impressionist in the West explores this significant, but little known, body of work in the context of the artist's entire oeuvre and larger developments in modern art at the turn of the century. This richly illustrated catalogue investigates how Hassam's images of the West mirror a number of his personal and professional concerns; provides insights into technical aspects of his work, which he tended to adapt to the subject and circumstances at hand; and looks at how the West appealed to the artist's broader interests and concerns, such as his desire to create an art that was purely American in both content and style."--Jacket

Childe Hassam : At Dusk, Boston Common at Twilight by Erica E Hirshler( Book )
2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 86 libraries worldwide
In this vivid account of one of Boston's best-loved paintings, leading American art specialist Erica E. Hirshler illuminates the context of Childe Hassam's 1880s city scene. With its rosy rust tones, intimate familial vignette and quiet expanse of snow-laden park, today "At Dusk (Boston Common at Twilight)" seems to encourage reflection and represent a decidedly old-fashioned city. Yet Hirshler reveals the ways in which the painting visually signaled the emerging modern city, from subtleties about women's place in the urban landscape to the uproarious clang of the streetcars that would have been heard on the busiest block in Boston. Enriched with reproductions of related paintings and archival illustrations, this evocative volume explores the countered conventions and bulldozed buildings behind the canvas's creation. Carefully researched and elegantly presented, the latest addition to the MFA Spotlight series will delight Hassam fans and history buffs alike

6 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 10 libraries worldwide
""I believe the man who will go down to posterity is the man who paints his own time and the scenes of every-day life around him," declared Childe Hassam in 1892. It was as a pioneer of American Impressionism and perhaps its most prolific and successful practitioner that Hassam (1859-1935) realized this credo. In so doing, he provided an account of our national life during a dynamic period. At the same time he helped to create a wave of enthusiasm for American Impressionism that he rode to fame and fortune." "Today he is best known for his portrayals of Celia Thaxter's old-fashioned garden on Appledore Island, Maine, and his depictions of the flags, banners, and bunting displayed on New York's tall buildings in patriotic response to World War I." "This illustrated publication accompanies a major exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum, the first retrospective presentation of Hassam's work in a museum since 1972. Unique to this volume are an account of Hassam's lifelong campaign to market his art, a study of the frames he selected and designed for his paintings, and an unprecedented lifetime exhibition record. Included in addition are a checklist of works in the exhibition and a chronology of Hassam's life. All works in the exhibition as well as comparative materials are reproduced."--Jacket
