« back to classes page

Known for its gritty urban subject matter, dark palette, and gestural brushwork, the Ashcan School (formally known as the New York Realists) was a loosely knit group of artists based in New York City and founded by artist Robert Henri.  A reaction against American Impressionism, this group believed in the worthiness of immigrant and working-class life as artistic subject matter and depicted the real rather than an elitist ideal.  Artists to be examined include Robert Henri, William Glackens, George Luks, George Bellows and John Sloan, among others.
