William Glackens’s early style, with dark tones reminiscent of Édouard Manet, resonated with the gritty, urban realism of a disparate group of American painters known as The Eight, with whom he exhibited in 1908. Glackens eventually moved away from depicting urban images in favor of seaside themes and landscapes. The artist’s luminous paintings, four of which are reproduced here, display his distinctive contribution to American modernism.
