Art and Photography , Hobbies / April 14, 2008

Hassam’s gallery in New York city was on Fifth Street, it was there that he found the subject of his most famous paintings, the 22 Flag paintings.

At 23 he had his first exhibition in Boston, it was a display of his watercolors. Although he enjoyed painting his native city, he was convinced by a close friend to travel to Europe to “step outside the box”. He and his friend, Edmund H. Garret, traveled all throughout Europe studying his impressionist forefathers. After establishing his reputation in Boston and studying in Europe, he settled in New York .
