Childe Hassam

Style: American Impressionism

Lived: October 17, 1859 - August 27, 1935 (19th - 20th century)

Nationality: USA

The word impressionism as applied to art has been abused, and in the general acceptance of the term has become perverted.

The true impressionism is realism. So many people do not observe. They take the ready-made axioms laid down by others, and walk blindly in a rut without trying to see for themselves.

Art, to me, is the interpretation of the impression which nature makes upon the eye and brain.
