9781858943848: Life's Pleasures: The Ashcan Artists' Brush with Leisure, 1895-1925

The images that are often associated with the Ashcan school of artists are the more sombre depictions of working-class life in early twentieth-century New York. This subject matter is not, however, representative of the entire spectrum of Ashcan art. Featuring some of the Ashcan school's most vibrant and outstanding works, this book demonstrates unequivocally the zeal with which these artists and their circle embraced the world of play enjoyed by all levels of society. Spirited scenes of diverse leisure activities in cafes, bars and parks, at the theatre, on the beach, at sporting events and in the countryside provide a refreshing look at this important artistic movement. Offering a fresh exploration of a major American artistic movement, "Life's Pleasures" includes works by George Bellows, William Glackens, Robert Henri, Edward Hopper, Rockwell Kent, George Luks, Guy Pene du Bois, Maurice Prendergast, Everett Shinn and John Sloan, among others.
