A foremost American Impressionist, Childe Hassam combined a preoccupation with the expressive qualities of light with lively brushwork and color. Hassam's paintings documented his wide travels throughout Europe and America and a predilection for picturesque and idealized scenes. His "flag paintings"—depictions of the parades along New York's Fifth Avenue during World War I—formed some of the seminal images of Americana. A founding member of The Ten, a group of painters who broke from the Society of American Artists in 1897, Hassam also painted nudes and figurative works, including a series of compositions that combined windows with still life tableaus and female figures, all silhouetted against views of the New York skyline. Later in his career, Hassam turned to producing etchings of architectural subjects.
