Glackens shared a studio with fellow member of the Eight and Ashcan, artist Robert Henri, in Philadelphia in 1894-5, before both visited Europe and moved to New York City. Glackens was Chairman of the Armory Show selection committee, the first President of the Society of Independent Artists, and a strong influence on the renowned Philadelphia art collector, Albert C. Barnes, for whom he was a consultant in his acquisitions of French Impressionist and Post-Impressionist Art. From 1925-32, Glackens lived and worked in France. After his Ashcan period, he developed an interest in Auguste Renoir’s colorism, apparent in Hillside at Cannes, and became less interested in urban scenes and more interested in rural landscapes.
