American Impressionists

The first day of a new year! Hope you have a creative 2009. Today, we have American Impressionists.

Drifting with the Tide
By Ralph Wormeley Curtis
Mrs. Chase in Prospect Park
By William Merritt Chase
Chase did a number of wonderful paintings of his wife, Alice Gerson, including Tamborine Girl, Reflections, and Blue Kimono (I'm not sure that last one is of his wife, but she looks like the same person to me. What do you think?).

El Jaleo
By John Singer Sargent
I had the urge to post this or this by Sargent, but then I realized I was going for all the paintings with boats in them.

By Mary Cassatt

Allies Day, May 1917
By Childe Hassam (1859-1935)

Take a look at the Metropolitan Museum exhibit about Hassam.
