Frederick Childe Hassam (Dorchester, Boston, Massachusetts 1859 – East Hampton, New York 1935) was a prominent and prolific American Impressionist painter, noted for his urban and coastal scenes.

Along with Mary Cassatt and John Henry Twachtman, Hassam was instrumental in promulgating Impressionism to American collectors, dealers and the museums. He produced over 3.000 paintings, watercolors, etchings and lithographs in his career and was a founding member of The Ten, an influential group of American artists of the early 20th century. His most famous works are the “Flag” paintings, completed during World War I.
