Philadelphia native William Glackens is best known for his early work as a member of a group of New York artists who focused on gritty, realistic scenes of urban life. This work dates from later in his career, after he had decided that being a true modernist was more about bold form and color. Here, for example, he seems to be channeling Matisse; Glackens would have been exposed to Matisse's work through the collection of his good friend Albert Barnes.
