Edward Redfield was an American painter known for his impressionistic landscapes, especially of the area around New Hope, Pennsylvania. Born in Delaware in 1869, Redfield practiced art at an early age and studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia. Here, he met Robert Henri, an important American painter, and together, they traveled to France. He continued to paint landscapes with his modified approach to Impressionism, which included heavy paint and long brushstrokes rather than the feathery strokes of French Impressionism. He moved back to Pennsylvania, focusing on painting snowy landscapes. He primarily painted outdoors and was known to paint in the harshest of weather conditions. Between 1900-1920, his career blossomed as he was recognized by the most prestigious institutions throughout the United States and France, receiving innumerable awards and solo shows. He continued to paint into to 1950s, but slowly turned to creating crafts until his death in 1965.
