Ashcan School Paintings

One of the few important art movements of the late 19th century to originate outside Europe, the Ashcan school was a loosely formed group of American artists who concentrated on painting scenes of everyday urban life around the turn of the 20th century. They were so named because they were perceived as being able to produce art even from the ash cans of huge cities.

Like other artistic movements and ideas of the time, the Ashcan artists were rebelling against what was considered to be acceptable and mainstream at the time; in this case, American Impressionism. Impressionism had spread from France and mostly depicted pleasant landscapes or rather innocuous portraits and was notable for its bright colors and depictions of the effects of light. The paintings produced by the Ashcan group were very different and often disturbing; the painters considered their work to be more truthful as they showed real people. The influence of such artists as Goya, Manet and Rembrandt can also be seen in some of their works.

The movement was founded by Robert Henri, a teacher who was painting in and around the Philadelphia area as early as 1891. Henri persuaded a group of newspaper illustrators to join him in this new movement; the group included Lawson, Sloan and Glackens and became known as the Eight. As a group, the Eight had only one exhibition, in New York in 1908; their realistic and often depressing work causing something of a sensation in the art world. Several members later went on to organize an influential show at the New York Armory in 1913.

At the beginning of the 20th century, New York City had a population of around three and a half million and was one of the largest cities in the world. It had become a major center for commerce, industry and communication, as well as a magnet for immigrants from all over the world, who poured in to the city .through Ellis Island. Although the Ashcan group painted other places, they are best remembered for their scenes of New York - the ultimate urban center at the time.

The ashcan group deliberately tried to depict the seedy and often unpleasant side of New York, with its tenements, crowds, crime, dirty streets and often horrendous overcrowding. In addition to paintings of the city there were also grimy black and white photographs by artists such as Jacob Riis, which if anything were even more powerful than painting, as photography was still in its infancy at the time. Many Ashcan paintings and photographs depict the poor and unfortunate people who populated this word – street vendors, drunks, prostitutes and alcoholics.

One of the most famous artists of the time was Edward Hopper, who although denying that he was part of the Ashcan group, is nevertheless sometimes lumped together with them. Hopper spent much of his life in New York and captured many less glamorous aspects of the city. He is perhaps best known for his painting 'Nighthawks' which depicts a group of rather lonely customers seen through the front window of a late night diner, but he also painted various street scenes, deserted shop fronts, and gas stations.

The Ashcan group artists started to drift apart and go their separate ways towards the beginning of the 1920s. Today, the movement is widely considered to be one of the most important and influential in American art.
