Comments: Best known as a painter of Boston street scenes and its waterfront, painted en plein air.

After 1920, he also produced NYC scenes in his Washington Square studio. A failed marriage probably caused

his return to Boston, a bohemian lifestyle, and drinking. Although he never studied in Paris, as did most other

American Impressionists, he captured perhaps better than anyone the feeling of Boston with vibrant strokes in oils and

pastels. When he died, his friends found him in his little room (apparently smelling of alcohol) with his bags packed and a

ticket to France in his pocket.
