Freeman’s June 5 American Art and Pennsylvania Impressionists auction is led by Childe Hassam’s Mrs. Hassam in a Garden, the American Impressionist’s largest and most significant painting from his Parisian period. The sale features an important selection of 19th-century paintings, from sweeping landscapes by Hermann Herzog and James Edward Buttersworth to a lush still life by Severin Roesen. Freeman’s continues to bring collectors of Pennsylvania Impressionists fresh-to-market selections—led by Fern Coppedge’s Winter Decoration, offered here at auction for the first time, as well as contemplative landscapes by Edward Willis Redfield and George William Sotter. The June 5 sale also features such important Impressionist works as Willard Metcalf’s Garden of Dreams and Guy Wiggins’s Winter from the Plaza, New York, as well as works by significant Philadelphia Illustration artists and colorists Jessie Willcox Smith, Arthur Beecher Carles, and Harry Bainbridge McCarter.
