Ancient Greek Vessels

Schofield: Impressionist Landscapes

The Trout Gallery
Gallery hours: Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

This exhibition surveys the career of Walter Elmer Schofield (1867–1944), a leading member of the Pennsylvania impressionists. Schofield combined the attention to light and color found in paintings by French impressionists with the greater weight and compositional structure of works by the American realists. He specialized in winter views of the Delaware River and summer scenes of Cornwall, England.
