Winter Solstice with the Pennsylvania Impressionists

Pennsylvania Impressionists: Edward Redfield, John Folinsbee, Antonio Martino, Arthur Meltzer, Daniel Garber, Kenneth Nunamaker, Roy C. Nuse, Robert Spencer, Harry Leith-Ross, Walter Emerson Baum, Fern I. Coppage, William Lathrop, Geoge Sotter, Walter Schofield
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.

You can find more information about these painters on the site of the James A Michener Museum (and here).

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!
