Schofield: Impressionist Landscapes

Schofield: Impressionist Landscapes

3-Delaware River


Walter Elmer Schofield (1866–1944) was a leading figure among the Pennsylvania landscape painters working in the Bucks County / New Hope area. He is best known for his vibrant, masterfully painted winter scenes of snow-covered riverbanks along the Wissahickon, Schuylkill, and Delaware Rivers and as well for his bright, summer views of cottages and the rocky coastline of Cornwall, England. Schofield gained prominence during the early decades of the twentieth century, showing his work widely and successfully in major museums, expositions, and galleries in New England, New York, the Mid-Atlantic, and the Midwest.

Schofield: Impressionist Landscapes presents an intimate selection of seventeen works by the artist. It complements the pioneering retrospective exhibition organized by the Woodmere Art Museum (2014), drawing together key works from that venue as well as from other important collections.
