William James Glackens (1870-1938) belonged  to the artists’ group called The Eight which was based in New York City in the early 20th century.  Glackens, like his fellow members, painted the ever changing urban spectacle, from the crowded tenements of the Lower East Side to Fifth Avenue’s corridor of affluent mansions and parks.
