"The Sunset at Sea...injects a Whistlerian composition with intense Postimpressionist color. The stylization of clouds and water into decorative striations recalls Georges Seurat's Lighthouse at Honfleur....Although Hassam did not adopt Seurat's Pointillist brushstroke, he exploited the coarse weave of the canvas to catch dabs of brilliant pigment, creating a tapestry of color like that produced by his French contemporary", - as described in the Metropolitan Museum of Art Series catalogue "Childe Hassam, American Impressionist".
