December 19, 1869, Bridgeville, Delaware
Redfield was an en plein aire painter and, in his time, the best-known landscapist in the US. After studying in Philadelphia and Paris, Redfield "retired" (at age 29) to rural life in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. His presence drew talented painters to the area (collectively, all became known as the New Hope Group). Redfield's awards were numerous, his output phenomenal and his landscapes (often snowy winter scenes) instantly recognizable - even if one is unfamiliar with the artist's name.
