Ashcan School - Ernest Lawson part 4

Ernest Lawson (1873 – 1939) studied at the Art Students League, New York, with J. Alden Weir and John Twachtman, and later in Paris at the Académie Julien. Upon his return to the United States he produced his famous impressionistic urban landscapes that linked him to the Ashcan school.

  1. Hello Poul. This a great Blog and serves as a wonderful reference point for most major artists.
    I have really enjoyed this Ernest Lawson series and there are so many influences on display in his work such as Van Gogh, Cezanne, Sisley, Monet and many others. However, after looking at a few hundred of his works his own style definitely emerges!

  2. Thank you for your comments. I try to show a lot of the artist's works now (as opposed to the early days of the blog) as I think it gives a clearer picture of the artist's career, and shows more than a few 'famous' pieces.
