Context: Unlike most other Ash Can painters, William Glackens adopted the outlook of the French Impressionists. This painting combines brisk brushwork with intense color to suggest the pleasure of a Sunday promenade in New York City's Central Park. The attention to certain details, like the top hats and parasols, further describes the lifestyle enjoyed by New York's upper classes. Trained as a newspaper illustrator in Philadelphia before moving to New York, Glackens also traveled to Europe, where he was influenced by the vigorous brushwork and realistic subject matter of 17th-century painters, including Rembrandt van Rijn, Franz Hals, and Diego Velazquez.
