“ROOFTOPS, NEW HOPE”: This painting by R.A.D. Miller (1905-1966) is featured in “Impressionism to Modernism: The Lenfest Collection of American Art,” on view at the Michener Art Museum in Doylestown, Pa., through January 5. The exhibit includes about 100 works by over 30 artists.
Now open at the Michener Museum in Doylestown, Pa., “Impressionism to Modernism: The Lenfest Collection of American Art” pays tribute to one of the Michener’s most impactful donors, Gerry Lenfest.
Lenfest and his wife, Marguerite, donated 59 Pennsylvania Impressionist paintings to the Michener in 1999. This comprehensive collection is the cornerstone of the Michener’s holdings of American Impressionism, with important works by Walter Emerson Baum, Fern Coppedge, John Fulton Folinsbee, Daniel Garber, William Lathrop, Edward Redfield, George Sotter, Robert Spencer, and Walter Elmer Schofield.
A compendium of Modernist works, donated by the Lenfests in 2010, rounds out this exhibition, featuring pieces by Charles Frederick Ramsey, Louis Stone, Charles Evans, Lloyd Ney, and Charles Rosen, among others. more
