Notes
"This vivid account of Childe Hassam's 1880s cityscape chronicles one of Boston's best loved paintings. The rosy rusty tones, cozy trio, and quiet expanse of the snow-laden park in At Dusk (Boston Common at Twilight) seem to encourage reflection, yet in its time it heralded the emerging modern scene, from observations of women's changing place in society to glowing depictions of the newly electric street lamps on the busiest block in Boston."-- Page 4 of cover.
