Description
This is the first life comprehensive book on the life and work of the most outstanding American realists of the early 20th century. It celebrates Charles Webster Hawthorne's achievements as an artist, an unacknowledged master of American realism, whose thoroughly modern idiom blends the Impressionist sensibility with the Ashcan School aesthetic.

Hawthorne is best known for his masterful use of colors, and the way they capture the human essence and reveal stunning beauty in the commonplace. Influenced by the Old Masters -- especially Titian and Frans Hals -- Hawthorne admired the rich tonality of color, the monumentality and beauty of representation, and the nobility of subjects depicted, and imported them into his paintings of ordinary people for whom he felt sympathy or admiration: Portuguese fishermen, the selectmen and selectwomen of Provincetown, the fishmonger, the captain's wife, mothers and children.
