Freeman's has sold more works by the Pennsylvania Impressionists than any other auction house, and has an unrivaled record in this market. We are also the only auction house to have sales dedicated to this exciting collecting area.
Centered in the New Hope area of Pennsylvania, this vibrant artistic community was established in 1898 with the arrival of the artist William Langson Lathrop. He was followed shortly thereafter by one of the community’s leading lights, Edward Willis Redfield. Other artists would follow over the early part of the 20th century, attracted by the community’s proximity to New York and Philadelphia, where many of them taught; they were inspired by the outstanding beauty of the surrounding landscape.
Significant American artists regularly featured in Freeman's Pennsylvania Impressionists sales are Daniel Garber, Fern Isabel Coppedge, George Sotter, and Edward Willis Redfield. Many auction records have been set for these and other artists of the genre at our auctions. Among our auction successes are a new world record was set for Fred Wagner, and exceptional prices achieved for Edward Redfield and Daniel Garber, each acquired by private collectors.
