William Glackens’s early style resonated with the gritty, urban realism of a disparate group of American painters known as The Eight, with whom he exhibited in 1908. But that year, Glackens started to work in a brighter, more modern palette. The beach scenes in this folio of notecards are sparkling, luminous works in bold combinations of saturated colors. They’re fine examples of the work that established Glackens as an important contributor to American modernism.
Contains five each of the following notecards:
The Bathing Hour, Chester, Nova Scotia, 1910
