tour at the James A. Michener Art Museum
Following the tradition of the French Impressionists
before them, Pennsylvania Impressionists such as Walter
Emerson Baum, Edward Redfield, and Daniel Garber painted the landscape
of Pennsylvania in a style that is still popular today. Many of these
artists taught classes at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts during
the school year while spending their summers in New Hope, PA. This tour will
focus on the works of these artists as well as others in the current
exhibition at the James A. Michener Art Museum in Doylestown, PA.
