Childe Hassam painting auctions on April 25

American artist Childe Hassam's 1920 painting, The East Hampton Elms, is valued at $600,000

The East Hampton Elms, a colourful street scene by the prolific American impressionist Childe Hassam, is to cross the block at US auction house Shannon's Fine Art Auctioneers on April 25.

 A smaller version of Hassams 1920 canvas, The East Hampton Elms, put in a strong performance at auction in 2006, suggesting the market is primed for works by the American artist

The $400,000-600,000 estimated work - executed in 1920 - measures 57 inches by 72 inches and is considered among the artist's finest by critics. A smaller version of the same painting sold for $884,000 in 2006, suggesting the estimate for the present piece is conservative.
