Like many of the American Impressionists, Hassam studied in Paris, where he was influenced by the French Impressionists. While his paintings are characterized by poetic attention to light and color, he is perhaps best known for his patriotic post-World War I paintings of the American flag called Flag Series, 1916–19. Hassam, originally a member of New York’s National Academy of Design, resigned from the Academy with nine other artists forming The Ten, a group of American Impressionists. Appledore, where Hassam summered for decades, is a small island in the Atlantic’s Isles of Shoals, outside Portsmouth, New Hampshire.
