Childe Hassam came to East Hampton in the summer of 1898, ranked among America's leading Impressionist artists at the time, he enjoyed the quaint village reminiscent of the New England towns he grew up in. With the tree-lined streets, weather-worn buildings, and a focus on leisure and sporting life, Hassam felt at home. Hassam was an avid golfer, and as such, he found his way into the most prestigious country club in The Hamptons. His paintings of golfers began when he moved to East Hampton and continued until the end of his career.
