Spring showers are here🌨️

Wilson Henry Irvine drew inspiration from his immediate surroundings and specialized in landscapes, particularly in spring scenes. Contemporary critics often remarked on Irvine's unique ability to translate onto canvas sublime atmospheric effects such as morning mist or afternoon haze.

American impressionist Childe Hassam painted very few conventional portraits; at the end of his career he himself could recall only eight. The present work is one of two portraits Hassam completed of the sitter, Mrs. Ada King Searls, wife of Charles A. Searls, portrayed here as a wealthy young woman ready to go out. The title derives from her jewelry; the most precious fire opals come from Australia and are known to be some of the most valuable opals in the world.

After enrolling at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris, Louis Ritman joined fellow American painters Frederick Carl Frieseke and Richard E. Miller at the artist’s colony in Giverny, France. It is here he began working as an impressionist, often painting en plein air, and became known for his lively scenes of women posed outdoors, often in gardens, or in domestic interiors.

The Philadelphia Show

The Philadelphia Show

Born Jennie Christine in Elgin, Illinois, she officially changed her name to Jane Peterson in 1909 after her first success as an artist. Her family was of humble background but certainly not poverty stricken. She became famous for a wide range of works from landscapes to still-lives that blend Impressionist and Expressionist movements. As a woman, her life was much more independent and adventurous than those of most of her contemporaries, and she traveled widely to paint including joining Louis Comfort Tiffany on a continental painting expedition in his private railway car.

Peterson does not belong to any particular school of painting, but combined techniques and styles from a variety of teachers and prevalent styles. However, many of her early works were strongly Impressionist, much influenced by Joaquin Sorrola y Bastida, a Madrid painter under whose teaching she abandoned dark tonalities for the spontaneous methods of applying paint characteristic of Impressionism.

Philadelphia Museum of Art's New Galleries Will Present a Fresh Take on Art of the Americas with a Focus on Philadelphia

"We’ve spent the last decade thinking about all the ways we can understand the meaning and history of the works in this collection to tell a deeper and truer story about who participates in the creation of an ‘American’ culture. We hope that visitors will discover for themselves that there is no single, unified ‘American art’ but instead, it contains many changing traditions that are a source of endless discovery and fascination.” - Kathleen A. Foster, Robert L. McNeil, Jr. Curator of American Art and Director, Center for American Art.

Today we are highlighting two new acquisitions by George Inness; "On the Hudson (The Distant River), ca. 1875–78" and "Summer, Milton, 1883."

George Inness recognized the importance of truth in painting and through his paintings, he conveyed an emotional and spiritual sensitivity towards nature.

Hermann Fuechsel gained recognition in the 19th century for his landscape paintings and engravings—luminous vistas of the Hudson River, White Mountains, Catskills, and Lake George. He produced engravings for Albert Bierstadt and several other American landscape painters, thus becoming one of the America’s most published artists.

Training under experienced landscape painters John Frederick Kensett and Alexander Wyant, Charles Day Hunt’s work pivoted between the naturalism of the Hudson River School and the expressionism of the tonalists. His work seamlessly blended both influences into an individual style of crisp brilliance and atmospheric moodiness.

Is that spring we feel?🌻🌱🌸

Bestowed with the moniker, ‘Apple-blossom Brown,’ John Appleton Brown was a Boston painter known for his bright meadow scenes of apple blossoms and charming cottages. His pastoral imagery, subtle delicacy of tone, and softened treatment of form were inspired by the French Barbizon mode of painting.

Happy Friday! We’re dreaming of a weekend getaway in this quaint cabin!

Painted at the height of George William Sotter’s career, this work likely depicts the vicinity of the artist’s home and studio in Holicong, Pennsylvania, from a bird’s eye view, amidst the “tranquil tenor, beautiful stone houses and rolling hills of Bucks County.” Sotter was initially invited to Bucks County, PA in 1902 to become the student of Edward Willis Redfield (1869–1965), moved there permanently in 1919, and ultimately became known for his impressionist winter scenes of the region, like this one.

“Why talk when you can paint?” – Milton Avery

In Avery’s mature style, he moved towards flattened abstractions, painting even tones of color and treating each shape as a single-color area. He treated negative space as a form and of itself, creating a pictorial dynamic between the positive and negative, the subject matter and​visual shapes.

Happy Friday! We are enjoying this fanciful painting by William Glackens and avoiding the sub-freezing windchills outside!

Like many other American painters, William Glackens went to Paris to study. In the 1910s and 1920s, after first-hand exposure, Glackens became devoted to the work of French Impressionist Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1841–1919), and as a result, his color palette became vivid and his brushwork looser and more spontaneous.

Albert Bierstadt’s romantic painting style sought to capture both the realism of the places he visited, and the atmospheric feelings experienced by being at those places.

This work was likely executed during or after Bierstadt’s 1869 visit to Niagara Falls, where his brother Charles was working as a photographer. This view faces south and depicts the Horseshoe Falls along the western edge of the Niagara River. At left is Terrapin Tower, on Goat Island, on the American side.

Here are the photos I took of the current exhibition as well as some other paintings which caught my eye. Very welcoming art gallery, so don't be afraid to visit!
Your ad (in The New Yorker) about the show on American landscapes contains a serious mistake. The snow covered peak in the Bierstadt painting you feature is, without any doubt whatsoever, the Eiger, as seen from Grindelwald. Last I heard, the Bernese Alps were still considered Swiss Landscapes.
