Childe Hassam began his artistic career cutting and drawing woodblocks as a commercial illustrator. He attended classes at the Boston Art Club and the Lowell Institute and by the early 1880s, he had his own studio where he painted dark and somber cityscapes of Boston.
Hassam spent nearly three years in Europe from 1886 to 1889, where he was introduced to the works of Claude Monet and Camille Pissaro. When he returned to New York he began to paint in the Impressionist manner with tiny brushstrokes, creating flickering forms of color and light. Hassam soon became one of the leading figures of American Impressionism.
This painting might depict the coast near Provincetown, Massachusetts where he spent an extended period of time in 1900.
