He assisted Albert C Barnes with establishing an art collection which was the basis for the Barnes foundation.
Glackens Artwork is currently on view at The Parrish Museum in Long Island. The exhibition  is an essential experience for anyone  fond of  Glacken's Artwork. He was clearly an artist who embraced his moment in time and his travels.The artists  focus of  strong color effects and vibrant color  reflect his emotions, his paintings weren't meant to closely mimic nature, but to use what ever colors necessary to express an emotion or feeling. His choice of color indicating his work was a celebration of life.

One of his most celebrated works is:
At Mouquin's 1905  at the Art institute of chicago
 Another one of my  favorites named ''Nude with Apple, is in the collection of the Brooklyn Museum.This  one is truly a master piece !

One of the  largest  known collections of Glackens Artwork is  housed at the Museum of Art in Fort Lauderdale, where an entire wing is dedicated to his work, it  holds around 500 of Glackens Arwork  in its collection.
