Signed Childe Hassam Watercolor – Poppies – Isles of Shoals

$49,500.00

This signed Childe Hassam Watercolor is part of his Isles of Shoals work. Painted during one of his vacation visits at Celia Thaxter’s family-owned hotel on Appledore Island, in the Isles of Shoals, off the coast of Maine and New Hampshire.

Celia Thaxter’s house on Appledore Island was a summer mecca for writers, painters, illustrators, musicians, and other artistic visitors.  Hassam painted many fine works there, some depicting the interior of Thaxter’s cottage, others (the majority), outdoor scenes set either in or nearby her much-admired flower garden. He produced over 3,000 paintings, oils, watercolors, etchings, and lithographs over the course of his career, and was an influential American artist of the early 20th century.

Celia Thaxter, a poet and renown porcelain painter, was close to Childe Hassam. She would host him for nearly 30 years.
This piece may have been a study for a larger work.  The frame measures 12″ by 13″  and the watercolor image measures 7.75″by 8.5″.
A rare opportunity to own a signed piece by this influential American Impressionist without paying from a few hundred thousand to 5-6 million!  This Childe Hassam piece will stay in the possession of the Collector until it is sold.
