Closing January 13, "Impressionist Prints of Childe Hassam" explores his works on paper which he began producing in 1915, turning away from oil paintings to experiment in a different medium. Still impressionist in style, his etchings demonstrate his fascination with city and country landscapes, as well as figures. https://goo.gl/dbdBq6
