Hassam's work was widely exhibited at established museums throughout the country. In the 1913 Armory Show Hassam was represented by six paintings, five pastels, and a drawing. About 1915 he began to turn in his efforts to printmaking, producing etchings and drypoints at first, and lithographs about two years later. By 1933 a catalog of his intaglio prints identified 376 different plates. Toward the end of his life Hassam primarily exhibited graphic works.
