The upcoming auction, presented by Freeman’s, features several paintings by Pennsylvania Impressionists Edward Willis Redfield and Daniel Garber. Among these works is Redfield’s Spring at Point Pleasant on the Delaware River. The view of the river from Point Pleasant, Pennsylvania, is a subject Redfield would return to regularly. “[T]here is a real ‘church’…” the artist said of the view in a 1928 interview. “[G]o there at sundown and watch the changing colors in earth and sky and water. It is a place to worship.” Collectors of Redfield paintings can also consider The Peaceful Valley and May, Point Pleasant, which are both available in this event.
Coming to auction from fellow Pennsylvania Impressionist Daniel Garber is a 1922 painting titled Rodger’s Meadow. Garber and his family moved from Philadelphia to Bucks County, which is northeast of the city, in 1907. By the 1920s, Garber found himself painting more intimate scenes of his rural surroundings, including this piece. View each of the lots and register to bid on the Freeman’s website.
