“Long Island Pebbles and Fruit,” by Childe Hassam, oil on wood panel, 23 1/2 by 56 1/2 inches, American Academy of Arts and Letters, New York, frame: stained and painted wood, designed and made by Childe Hassam, 1931

I came across this great little film on the About Last Night blog showing Childe Hassam at work on this painting in his studio in Long Island. It was produced by the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 1932.

It totally inspired my work in the studio this morning. I am so grateful to have found it. To see the film for yourself click here.
