Frederick Childe Hassam, Late Afternoon, New York, Winter (circa 1900)

“Hassam, who had shown an early promise for art, escaped the life of an accountant after mere weeks at that career.

Though he didn’t consider himself an Impressionist, he is best known for a similar use of color, light and brushwork.” - Art History
