William James Glackens (March 13, 1870 – May 22, 1938) was an American realist painter and illustrator, as well as one of the founders of the Ashcan School of American art. His dark-hued, vibrantly painted street scenes and depictions of daily life in pre-WW I New York and Paris first established his reputation as a major artist. His later work was brighter in tone and showed the strong influence of Renoir.
In 1904, Glackens married artist Edith Dimock, the daughter of a wealthy Connecticut family. They lived together in a Greenwich Village townhouse, where they raised two children, Lenna and Ira. Many artists were drawn to the home of this happy family, which appears in many of Glackens paintings. In 1957, Ira Glackens published “William Glackens and the Eight: The Artists Who Freed American Art” about his father’s role played in the emerging realist movement in art.
“The man with something to say is an important man in art - in fact, the only man who may claim the title of artist. The manner of his expression matters very little. That will take care of itself. The man with something to say generally says it pretty well." — William Glackens
