Gratz Gallery & Conservation Studio is proud to announce a special Private Collection exhibition from Saturday, June 9 through Friday, August 31, 2012. This exhibition features a selection of paintings from one of Bucks County's most extraordinary private collections. The paintings were purchased over many years by one of the country's most prominent collectors of American Impressionism, specifically the New Hope School, and have not been available on the market for years.
The collection features two beautiful paintings by the revered Pennsylvania Impressionist, Daniel Garber. Each painting demonstrates why Garber was considered one of the premier artists from the New Hope Circle. Fellow Impressionist, Edward Redfield's work is also included in the exhibition. New Hope in Winter is a beautiful composition depicting a snow-covered street in New Hope; complete with a horse drawn carriage and figures preparing their sled. Additional highlights include a selection of works by Fern Coppedge and a very rare example of fellow Philadelphia Ten alumnae, Helen Kiner McCarthy's work. There are also paintings by Harry Leith-Ross, Kenneth Nunamaker, Rae Sloan Bredin, Mary Elizabeth Price, William Francis Taylor and Roy Nuse. A rare oil on canvas by Frank F. English is also available.
A catalog of the show will be available on the Gratz Gallery & Conservation Studio website prior to the event. Visit www.gratzgallery.com to preview the exhibition.
