Childe Hassam said regarding his impressionistic art "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." Without a doubt, Childe Hassam is American favorite impressionist. Hassam moved to Paris in 1886 to study at the Acad,mie Julian. While in Paris, his paintings were shown at the Salon, the most well-known gallery of the time and conformed to its standards. Hassam returned to the United States in 1889, settling in New York City, where everyday city life became his favorite theme and subject matter. During this period, Hassam dedicated himself to trying to capture "the moment," a painting philosophy he adopted from the Impressionists. Childe Hassam was one of the members of the American Impressionist art group 'The Ten'. His paintings depict urban motifs in varying weather conditions. He also painted New England landscapes. Hassam is amongst the most celebrated of all artists born on U.S. soil.
