Shipyard: Children Playing

1900-1902

Maurice Prendergast

(American, 1858-1924)

Monotype

Image: 20 x 25.3 cm (7 7/8 x 9 15/16 in.)

Mr. and Mrs. Charles G. Prasse Collection 1982.166

Description

In 1891, Maurice Prendergast left Boston for Paris, where he studied art for three years at the Atelier Colarossi and the Académie Julian. It was probably in France that he learned the technique of monotype, a medium that he used throughout the second half of the 1890s. This delicate view of children on a beach---possibly Saint-Malo in France---reflects the influence of James Abbott
McNeill Whistler (also in this gallery).
