The Ashcan School

New York City, 1908 to C.1913


The Ashcan School was a small group of artists who sought to document everyday life in turn-of-the-century New York City, capturing it in realistic and unglamorized paintings and etchings of urban street scenes. It largely consisted of Robert Henri and his circle. Henri, an influential teacher, was an admirer of the unpretentious and masculine realism of Thomas Eakins and Thomas Anshutz.

In addition to Henri, the Ashcan School consisted of George Wesley Bellows, William Glackens, Everett Shinn, George Luks and John Sloan.

The spirit of the Ashcan School was continued in the American Scene Painting of the 1920's and 1930's.
