Exhibition Website

Aug 6 2017 - Nov 25 2017

Bruce Museum

Greenwich, CT

The painter, illustrator, and author George Wharton Edwards was celebrated in his day as a talented artist for his depictions of picturesque American and European scenes. The works assembled in this exhibition, which all come from the Bruce Museum’s extensive collection, show that Edwards preferred an underlying technical draftsmanship in his works on paper and a more fluid treatment, in the manner of American Impressionism, in his oils on canvas. Together, the works offer a glimpse into the proficiency of one of Greenwich’s most notable local artists.
