Ashcan School - Ernest Lawson part 5

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.
