William James Glackens (Born 1870) was born in Philadelphia, Pa., U.S. he’s an artist who was known for painting in a vivid and robust manner. He introduced a straightforward realism into the art of the United States. However, he later became interested in Impressionism and after being influenced by Renoir Pierre-Auguste. In the last 20 years of his life, he became a regular traveler to Europe, and used to spend much of his time in the south of France and Paris. He died in Westport, Connecticut in 1938. His broad knowledge of the arts of Europe and the trends made him a particularly valuable adviser to Albert C. Barnes, who was an American collector. He was an artist whose paintings of middle-class urban life and street scenes rejected the 19th-century dictates of academic art. He studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, and during his studies, he also worked as an illustrator for The Philadelphia Press, the Public Ledger, and the Philadelphia Record. He later joined a group of artists whose interests were in depicting contemporary life. The leader of this group was called Robert Henri, and he’s the one with whom Glackens had traveled to Paris in 1895. Other members of the group included Everett Shinn, George Luks, and John Sloan, as well as Arthur B. Davies, Maurice Prendergast, and Ernest Lawson. Glackens’ art became very popular, and even today, framed William James Glackens art adorn the walls of many prestigious buildings around the world. In 1898, Glackens went to Cuba to cover the American-Spanish War for McClure’s Magazine.
