Ashcan School - Everett Shinn part 2

Everett Shinn (1876 - 1953) was an American realist painter and member of the Ashcan School, also known as 'the Eight.' He was the youngest member of the group of modernist painters who explored the depiction of real life. He is most famous for his numerous paintings of New York and the theatre, and of various aspects of luxury and modern life inspired by his home in New York City.
