Edward Willis Redfield was a 20th century American artist known for his Impressionist style landscape paintings and as one of the founders of the art colony at New Hope, Pennsylvania. He was born in Delaware and trained at the Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia, and then later on in Paris, where he much admired the Impressionist works of Claude Monet and Camille Pissarro. He returned from France with his newly married French wife in 1898 and settled near New Hope. Redfield is seen as one of the first true American Impressionists painting American scenes, often of a snowy winter, and in Monhegan Island, Maine in the summers. Redfield also painted tonal works of New York, and this series of paintings, painted in a six month period in 1909, are also very highly regarded.
Notable works by Edward Willis Redfield are “Winter Scene” painted in 1920, “The Studio Garden”, “The Rock Garden Monhegan Island” painted in 1928, and “Lower New York” painted in 1910
