Rain Storm, Union Square by Childe Hassam, 1890. Hassam was a member of The Ten, a highly influential group of artists working predominantly in New York or Boston and based around Impressionism. This, combined with the presence of his piece The Avenue in the Rain in the Oval Office at the Whitehouse, make Hassam a bit of a giant in American art. Look out for The Avenue in the Rain which I will post soon!
