After graduating from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia, Edward Redfield traveled in Europe with his classmate Robert Henri (American, 1865-1929). Both artists were inspired to apply the principles of French Impressionism to modern American subjects, although Henri returned to New York City and Redfield settled in Center Bridge, Pennsylvania. Working from nature to create atmospheric landscape scenes, Redfield painted in even the most severe weather.
