Pennsylvania Impressionism: Legacy of New Hope Artists
From approximately 1900 to 1960, a vibrant art colony located in and around New Hope, Pennsylvania, became one of the most distinguished gatherings of artists in the U.S. It is the story of scores of talented artists who were drawn to the New Hope area where they devoted themselves to capturing the beauty of Bucks County, generally in the impressionistic style. Known as the New Hope School of Art, it is the story of its founder, William Lathrop, of women artists (known as The Philadelphia Ten) who banded together in the 1920s and 1930s to present their work, and of present day artists and many others in between . Come find out about this rich local heritage and how it can still be appreciated and experienced today.
