William Glackens

This richly illustrated volume provides a comprehensive introduction to William Glackens (1870-1938), one of the liveliest and most influential American painters of the early twentieth century. A gifted realist painter and member of the Ashcan School along with such artists as Robert Henri and John Sloan, Glackens was crucial to the introduction of modern art in the United States through his collaboration with Albert C. Barnes and championing of landmark exhibitions of American and European avant-garde. Glackens is known for his expressive ability in a range of genres, lively use of colour, and masterly draftsmanship.

The finest examples of his works over a 50-year career, including paintings previously unknown to the general public, are reproduced here – from intimate nudes, portraits, and figure studies, to vivid still lifes, vibrant street scenes, landscapes, and seascapes in which he captured people and their surroundings with matchless spontaneity and spirit.
