A wonderful Duille fine art print of Childe Hassam’s monumental work.

About the work
The Fourth of July, 1916 captures a quintessentially American moment of the early twentieth century.

New York City’s Fifth Avenue festooned with American flags for an Independence Day parade. Hassam, a renowned Impressionist, was moved by the display of patriotic fervour in the heart of America’s most famous city. He keenly supported the Preparedness Movement arising from a desire widely held for defence-readiness. Against the backdrop of war spreading in Europe from 1914, the painting’s full title – “The Fourth of July, 1916 ( The Greatest Display of the American Flag Ever Seen in New York, Climax of the Preparedness Parade in May )” – gives a sense of Hassam’s motivation in making it.

The Fourth of July is one of several flag paintings by the artist. A related work in the series ( The Avenue in the Rain ) has gained international fame through its display in the White House and Oval Office of numerous US Presidents. A print of that work is also available.

Our stunning print is made using museum-quality materials and would make a thoughtful gift or long-lasting addition to your collection.
