LabelAfter Daniel Garber began teaching at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, he divided his time between Bucks County and Philadelphia. Best known for his depictions of the countryside and quarries along the Delaware River, Garber was also noted for his large-scale figure compositions and interiors, which often incorporated close friends and family members. This painting depicts Garber's eldest daughter, Tanis, in the family's town house on Green Street in Philadelphia.
