Ashcan School - William Glackens part 5

William Glackens (1870 – 1938) studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and later moved to New York City, where he co-founded what came to be called the Ashcan School art movement. This group of artists, dubbed by the press "the Eight Independent Painters" or The Eight, chose to exhibit their works without pre-approval by the juries of the existing art establishment. He became known for his dark-hued paintings of street scenes and daily life in the city's neighbourhoods. His later work was brighter in tone, and showed the influence of Renoir. During much of his career as a painter, Glackens also worked as an illustrator for newspapers and magazines in Philadelphia and New York City.
This is part 5 of a 5-part post on the works of William Glackens. For biographical notes see part 1. For earlier works see parts 1-4.

After a break, the next post on the Ashcan School will feature the work of Robert Henri.
