Here in southeastern Pennsylvania, we don’t have the harshest winters — certainly not like Minnesota or Maine or even northern New York State — but we do have winter; and never have Pennsylvania’s winters been more beautifully celebrated than by the Pennsylvania Impressionists, a group painters who formed an art colony in and around New Hope, Pennsylvania and Lambertville, New Jersey in the late 19th century.
So to celebrate today’s Winter Solstice, here are a few winter scenes from the brushes of Pennsylvania Impressionists.
There is currently an exhibition of the work of Walter Schofield (image above, bottom) at the Woodmere Art Museum in Philadelphia; it will be on display until January 25, 2015. I hope to report on that show in more detail soon.
Happy Winter Solstice!
