Ash Can school

Group of U.S. realist painters, active in New York City с 1908–18, who specialized in scenes of everyday urban life.

Inspired by Robert Henri, the core group included William Glackens, George Luks (1867–1933), Everett Shinn (1876–1953), and John Sloan. As artist-reporters on the Philadelphia Press before moving to New York, they had developed a quick eye and a memory for detail. Though they often depicted slums and outcasts of the city, they were more interested in the picturesque aspects of these subjects than in the social issues they raised. George Wesley Bellows and Edward Hopper were also associated with the group. See also The Eight.
