Oil on canvas. 36" x 23.13
Childe Hassam - July 4, 1916
The Fourth of July, 1916. The Greatest Display of the American Flag Ever Seen in New York. This painting was inspired by the climax of the Preparedness Parade in May of that year. It must have been an inspiring sight to behold. Thankfully, we have this world-famous painting to document the historic World War I parade down Fifth Avenue.
Enjoy the Independence Day fireworks tonight. via
